Get married to have a companion,
But I married for love also.
They said carnal demands will faze you out.
Spinsters are not welcome anywhere….
Whatever excuses were there,
Finally I did marry for all.
But when my throat parches in swelter
Not a soul is hither to be a help mate or amour,
I wonder why I dwelt in matrimony.
Solitude is a malady to be faced alone.
