Tryst - Poem by Nayani Sarma

That everyday I live, is a tryst with destiny now... To catch a glimpse of your face, to build a shelter in your heart, but I fear the truth, the criminal in me half-awake yet half- asleep keeps the heart at bay... Unsaid thoughts capture me, bound me in chains, the thoughts to harm you reigns my mind but kills me inside...for I am no criminal on the outside but cynical by heart. Everyday I'll hurt you a little more, and everyday I'll explain it all. A parasite I am and You are the cynosure of my soul. You have taken away all that was mine in exchange of that soul - the soul that belongs to me no more. Darkness is once again engulfing me, before I fought it, now I am giving in. Nothing's left to share anymore except the need of the soul, the desire for you in me grows like a fire, the unexpressed feelings ignite it everytime you extinguish it. Silence speaks to me now, tells me to let you go. Dont want to love you but I cant help it anymore, dont want to hurt you and kill myself once more... Prey.. Tell me what I ought to do, this tryst is destroying me but even this suffering seems beautiful... despite the pain, I feel wonderful...!
