Muscle-less




Just a moment more and shall be done
Have sat too long on this muse, lonesome
Inspirations dead, muscles lagged
Had to peel off my skin and the fat

Cured and curried, bottled with rum
Surprisingly it melted, now feeling numb

Intoxicated, unmatched is your love
Bundled, twiddled, slowly I wrote
Ghazals, poems, text and prose
Something balmy to augment flow

Wrote about fire, charred my soul
Squashed, smashed under heart-ached glow
Scratched the pen to write folklore
But, now I am done, can write no more

I give up, I want my muscles back
To give the shape to my skinny self

  9. It felt nice to read, the rhyming words and all, but honestly I didn't quite get the gist of it. No matter how simple the poem is, I can't understand that easily. Childhood problem, you see. :(
    Will read it again later to understand properly. :)
    All the best!

  12. Hello Pushpee :) I love poetry and I love the fact that you have written it with all your heart. Love gone wrong really takes away not just the muscles but the warmth that envelopes the soul! Good one! Good luck with BATOM 6!
