Ode To An Obsession - Poem by Mohd Ehtesham

Since one August evening, my eyes when saw you
They've been craving, for more and more
Your form mesmerizing, dazed them with a view
Insane they echoed, encore encore..!


When that alluring face, with tinge that golden
Inkling in charm inherent, formed a smiling bloom
I remember it how I, through days those olden
Wondered at its potence, at how much did it loom


You've been since then, for me a thrilling drug
The more I resist you, the more I need you
I submit my being, with a surrendering shrug
To my ruthless desire, to entreat you


Entreat you to bless me, with thy soothing flashes
So that these eyes weary, get embalmed with relief
Or let world this see me, burning down to ashes
Like I now burn in, smouldering embers of grief


I pray this immense yearning, someday meets its end
The pain it has dispensed, has been excruciating
My soul is now too tired, enduring this wobbly trend
I'd never wished to go on, just waiting and waiting...
