Parasitic Tendencies Of Love! ! ! ! ! ! - Poem by Shagun Khera

Like a leech that crawls beneath your skin...
feeding on the lingering thoughts
that stick like a cyst in your blood...
and the infected sanity, flows right into your heart
making you numb, depletion of logic,
the desire to seek complete solitude
throngs your mind like a turbulence of an amphitheatre
and pricks you in the moments of silent monotony....
symphony of misery....plays a continuous melancholy...
whispering pieces of loss...like a slow intoxication..
and you open your eyes just to realize..
you wished they could close forever.....

blistering sun paints the blue of your mind...
and you find yourself somewhere between your legs..
head down with complete denial for life
bothered by faint traces of light....
and the past that runs amok...
like a village on fire..
burning the self within..
consumed by the ashes of the wrath...
when touched...burn your hand...your mind...your soul...
chained to the blackest doors of darkest passage..
the eyes no more seek the whore called hope..
which dances bare naked in your lap..
and vanishes into thin air..
when your just about to grab....
slithering slowly into the pits of incorrigible incompleteness...
cries that turn into wails...
your heart gushes the sudden adrenalin...
with a will to kill and smother
what deprived you of your desire...
and the monster within is revoked...
vengeance rages with the profoundness of lust..
and the blood that oozes out of your eyes...
holds the devil within...
a lame consolation that triggers a word of advice...
that she is gone...
a million miles away..
to a point of no returning back...

robbed of yourself....
the gnash and the gnaw...
give in to the destiny
carved out of hatred...
and you slip away..
into a poison...churned by your own self..
tasting it..over and over again...
till you can no longer taste...
and wait for another day...
for death to arrive..
at your doorstep....once again...
