Slumberless. Poem by Aneena Elza Binod

Slumberless.

Rating: 5.0


Seeped into her system like malice,
Making it hard for her to dismiss,
Entwined in each other's arms
Lay coffee and cigar,
Plotting to tear her apart
From the love of her life.

The blues and the booze,
Joined forces,
And stabbed from the back.
Soaked in stress and mess,
No longer did she look
The ravishing lady she was.

Didn't take sleep a minute
To desert her like he never knew her.
Tossed and turned all night,
Trying to fall asleep with all her might.
Through her veins, she felt the pain,
And all efforts went down the drain.

Forever was he gone,
Or so she thought.
The minute she ditched the snakes,
In disguise of coffee, cigar, blues and booze
Running back, he came
With open arms to embrace her.

Slumberless.
