A Poet Has Nothing To Lose! - Poem by PARTHA SARATHI PAUL

A poet has nothing to lose except poetry!
What`s a poet to lose except poetry?
Poetry is not like a beautiful girlfriend.
Heart pulsates as long as life sustains.
The bond between poetry and a poet
Stands as strong as an umbilical cord.
Who`ll dare to sever this holy union?
The pure delight of an artiste lies in
The gypsy-mad creative pursuit.
All the loud claps and lofty applause
Are safely reserved for prodigy performers!
When reptile lust incubates within for all such insect like plaudits
Psychosis constricts me like a python!
The fear of climbing up a steep ladder of many steps
And the resultant height brings me vertigo!
The phobia of peeling of many disguised masks
And somersaulting ahead to catch up with the lucky runners
Overpower me like a haunting hallucination!
What if this abracadabra appears in the last page
At the last bottom of many effervescent geniuses?
A poet lives on the unique sentiment
And in the crank pride of priceless creation!
