The rib I could have been in your body

If you cared to let me be a woman

Of my own making

May have prevented that pain

In your chest

Covering your heart

When you lost me

And returned to dust

From where you were made

    1. Thank you for the comment , the cause of death is not mentioned. Adam was made from dust as per genesis and Eve from his rib. In this poem a man woman relationship , where there was no freedom to develop self , hence the woman is in quest to find her own self , which perhaps was not necessary , if man participated in her growth is mourned. Being a part of each other ought to be mutual, is the unsaid grouse. However there is no murder ! It merely is a hindsight at what genesis can do for these times.

  1. 😉 Thanks , murders are also common now- a days , hence it becomes necessary to clarify the symbolism of murder as you did in your comment. However , here it is meant as real eventuality of life as going back to the soil.
