Listen to me now, keenly,
For I want you to know how madly
I’ve fallen for your charm, entrapped,
For you are a celestial gift, my superpower
And you are the devil’s spell, my kryptonite..
The fuel that drives me all along
As well as the friction that slows me down..
I know you’ve given me wings to fly and soar
But you’ve also caged me in a confusing chaos;
Smiles, hope and ecstasy you’ve gifted,
But, tears, despair and melancholy too you’ve granted.
I do not know if being charmed by you is a sin,
You are the only drug I willingly indulge in,
Only to regret later, for the lost time haunts me,
Even when I know you’ve kept me company
Through thick and thin, ever since
I could think and make memories..
I cannot fathom an existence without you
Haunting me from the morning, when I wake up to
The sunlight streaming through the window,
To the dead, silent night that lulls me to sleep..
What have you done?! I was supposed to be your master
But now, I’ve become your obedient slave
Who listens to your whispers and fantastical stories,
And meets numerous people, and have conversations
Writing down words like I do now, as you play
With my heart, mind and soul, like a puppeteer.
Oh dear!, You are both my freedom and fear
Forever trapped in your embrace,
Always seeking you for solace..
I appeal to you! Kindly loosen this grip
For at times, it becomes fatal and suffocating
‘Cause I know that many of your whispers are lies
Your stories being hard to realize
In this black and white world, so please don’t paint
My eyes; I’m becoming incurably blind
To the harsh, dark reality,
Almost losing my sanity…
