Kiss Of Pride Poem by Avik Datta Gupta

Kiss Of Pride

Place a kiss upon the mirror
Feel the thrill of insanity..
Drown you in your washbasin of victory
Till there is no need for you to breathe
Love yourself you reckoned
No bigger success than success itself
No successor of success either
Apart from your brilliance Million micro organisms swarm below
It feels lonely at the top
Leave alone balancing on a toe
Like a ballet dancer
Defying stupid chills and that idiotic vertigo
Or the prick of the peak
Like a swirling wingless angel
Blowing it's own trumpet
Loud enough for the world to hear
Till you dont care to hear
yourself anymore
Like the big mouthed alligator
You know you need to compete with yourself
As you look back happily to see
Tired images of yourself
Running behind you in vain
The gold silver bronze are all yours
Like the Sun Moon and Mars
Yes, exosphere is where you start
Chucking that ball you were on
Somewhere into a blackhole
Some animal in the zodiac will fetch it..
Back..for you with another big bang
Echoing the explosions of your winning laughter
Feel your pet's tongue tickle
As it licks your feet
And you wag your tail
With countless inspiring tales
As you milk some cows of the Milky Way
Dont get distracted, just follow your nose
And see how far it goes
And when you are up close
Seeing your laterally inverted proud image
You might see a mesmerised house fly
Sitting and rubbing its hands on the lipmark of your mirror
Buzzing another magnitude
Of its awe inspiring deeds
