Not Man Enough

Poem By Hazel Nut

A man is not just one
Who displays his physique
Pays for your luxuries
And entertains you in bed.

A man is one who has emotional muscles
A man is one who protects and secures
A man is one who cushions you in distress
A man is one who shares your pain
A man is one who dares to woo
A man is one who cares to win
A man is one who supports your growth
A man is one who pillars your dreams
A man is one who evokes your admiration
A man is one who epitomizes respect.

You were born a man;
But you never lived to be one.

How can you father my child?
You’re not man enough to be my man.

A Dream That Made Me Cry

Like the homeless Hansel and Gretel
Discovering a house of confectionaries,

Flying across the deep blue sky,
With unhindered strokes -untamed.

Pre-Natal Death

You implanted a seed of hope in me
I nurtured it with tender kisses
Until you kicked upon my pregnant dreams
And left me shrieking in horror

Still Veiled In Ambiguity

Do you remember,
How we met for the first time -
Amidst ancient cave paintings?


For all the love I gave you,
You offered me money.

For all the care I gave you,
