The Dream at Daybreak (2) - Manushya Puthiran

Unending downpour
An unknown city
An ancient house
As I bend
To kiss your vagina
Each time
The scream of a mad woman
From the neighbouring room
Assails us


The chains weltering on her nakedness
Vibrate with her animosity

The scream dies down
When I staying nearby you
Scold her,
oblivious to you.

Again when I approach
 your breasts
the madwoman
wails
beating her breasts

Darling
You do not see that scene
You do not listen to that voice
As we are
copulating in your dream

Since I do not want
you to be frightened,
I make sure
You do not wake up
from that nightmare
