City lights


...and to sin was a game... neither offensive nor malevolent.

I was losing myself... I couldn't recognize myself.

The looking glass no longer reflected me... it only reflected what others wanted to see in me.

In the folds of this blaring city noise... I, for a change was silent... I was numb.

The crystal decanter holds no wine...

Enclosed in my huge apartment, I was aware of desolation, aware of solitude.

As the perfume filled my dank parlour with bewitching balminess...

I felt a warm breath kiss the nape of my neck...

And I closed my eyes to ease away the bliss...

The string of pearls... touch the sleeves of my black dress...

Love, is it?

It is, isn't it?

I am ready to go...

Somewhere... where?

I do not know...

I am merely an effigy of my former self.

The warm breath was that of my former self.... my real self.

...torn between fear and desire

 it was there...

all along...

and yet

I knew -

It had eclipsed under starry nights...

Under the blaze of city lights.

Indeed...

Madness is the offspring of love...

ohh..! It is.
If not, it is not love.
Tell me what joy would there be, if love was to be all sane ?

Hello. To be frank, I don't really enjoy reading poems. They are too cryptic for my taste.

But this one just blew me away. beautifully woven with words, I could understand every line and relate to it so easily! Brilliantly written.
