These strings of my heart

you hold

it’s not a tale fresh

but rather old

Ears are ringing

with your sighs

and moans.

You have a way

to disarm me

each time

I wish to get away

do not go

please stay!

I have reserved

a rose

now dried

and dead

in the pages

of my favorite book

please come

and have a look

scrawled

on that bookmark

is your name

in blood

my own

and very much so!

I cannot make

the flower live

its supine

yet glorious

in its death

but if you look deep

you find the bloom

of the past moon

its lights

witnessing

the embrace

of us two

and those small

kisses that

grew longer

with each done

and it was you

who always

won.

You whetted me

with your desires

impregnated

with your passions

till I scurried

for grips on you

I felt all of you

aha! how soft

you used to be

and what refined

feelings

you had

and now it is all gone.

Now I am told

there is a queue

near you

where you cater

to a few

how life degrades

and how emotions

get sold

is this that exhibit

in a new fold.

A slumber can be disturbed

and a stupor can be shaken

but an addiction

cannot be broken,

I realize that

and shrug at you.

By the way

in the small garden

of my hamlet

and among the thorns

there is a bud

in deep brood

and slowly

sucking

food

it grows

to a gradual

beauty

and bloom

may be

you come out of

your life’s black

walk in grey

and then

back

in light

of white

and maybe

I would have

another

rose

and another

bookmark!
