She pines away in vain...

She gave him life and all she had--he's powerful and robust.
'Tis his turn now, to give to her,
he's paying her in kind.
Day by day she's torn to bits,
Ah! insatiable lust!
She bears it all, wishing him well--"I'll do what I can for you".
He took apart her limbs n all,
would take her head soon too.
Crippled now, mother earth--she pines away in vain.
"I begot him once--all powerful man,
his birth's, dear God! a bane."

  1. Poignant! Thought provoking! This is how she'd react, I'd say, if she could cry out.
