The Obsessive Agony Of Lust Poem by Chinedu Dike

The Obsessive Agony Of Lust

Rating: 4.8

Self lost in obsessive agony,  
Your primal passion - a flaming ferocity,  
The raging fire consumes your dignity,  
And shame is put to slumber.

Seduced by the wayward twin of Love,  
Power of deviation subdued,  
On pathway of despair you tread:  
A burden too heavy to bear.

Mind drowning in bitter-sweetened sensation,  
Onto elusive dream you strive to hold fast -
Which vanishes like alluring mirages in vast 
Deserts: a lethal mix of hope and anxiety.

Raving lunatic you've become
Seeking savage-desire's fulfillment:  
An ugly reflection of nature devoid of contentment.
Lust: a nightmare in the lonely bed of infatuation.

Metaphor, simile and deep meanings written in high poetic language, makes thinkers and intellectuals review their behaviours and personalities very often, in the light of this poem might they will criticize themselves as well.

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.

Anyone who practices this act is devoid of manners and reason. An animal. He must seek professional help. Another brilliant work coined in a wonderful poem.
