Desire - Poem by Seema Aarella

(Inspired by Mr.Arkay Das's wonderful poem 'Desire')

My desire, in tandem with feral pleasure
Tidally rises, falls, and rises again
On mortal body bow, a pointed sin cursor
Soulless and weak, slips, fails again

On ice capped mount an austere pleasure
Mutates, revives and refines again
Lying on thorn bed, in penance posture
To crush his desire, by hammer of pain

A newborn desire of immature pleasure
Reaches fails and reaches again
From within the cradle, cosy and secure
It strives to touch and feel its domain

On crutches his desire, sans all pleasure
He limps and stops and limps again
Until the shadow of death in usher
Detached the bond of desire chain.

    Masterfully written... For me desire works like an Antidepressant drug; means it always pushes me up, whenever I am down... Desires keep the life in motion and life would gradually end, if there would be no desire... This is the beauty of life that it is never constant and desires play a great role in this process of fall and rise... I would quote one of my favourite philosopher of all times, Volatire...

    'I have wanted to kill myself a hundred times, but somehow I am still in love with life...'

    I think you got what I tried to convey...
    This is a lovely read Seema, but I don't know, why my heart and mind is hankering for more... This is the Desire... :)

    Thanks for sharing

    Regards, Kamran
