Lust: A Nail on Love Slide Poem by Aftab Alam


One night I dreamt, a horrible dream
I flew far with my unconscious stream
Through desert and barren land, landed
There on a mysterious place, it hounded

At my utter surprise on the flat rock
Moribund woman lied there breathless
Seen and crossed, went ahead, lock
Of my mind opened with a cry; ease less

A high wind circled round me with laugh
A wingless angel hovered over me, half
Creature: half animal half woman, all side seen
Thought some sorts of evil, I was so keen

Scrambled far as to keep safe that I did
Crossed the odorous pond, in a cave I hid
There ran a lion like man from the cave
Jumped into the dirty pond like a knave

Very woman and the lion man were enjoying
The swim and heaven fragrance was sliding
I witnessed everything like a senseless statue
Awoke on my bed I thought vice and virtue

Sudden like lightening it came in my mind
Without lust, man and woman can't find
The love that we all talk about but hide
Ephemeral Love is lust, a nail on love slide
