The Obsessive Agony Of Lust

Rating: 4.8

It is a brilliant poem on having touching expression and nice collocation. The penmanship is touching and nice. It is a lesson to the human society. I quote....... Raving lunatic you've become, Seeking savage-desire's fulfillment: An ugly reflection of nature devoid of contentment. - a nightmare in Infatuation's phoney bed. Thanks for sharing.10

Chinedu's Poet's Pen always emits power in all his creations that I have read. Yes, turns a person into raving lunatic devoid of contentment. This wonderful poem unfolds the animalistic side of a human being conveyed vividly with compelling imagery. Another powerful and perceptive write brilliantly penned.
