Desire Me

My body was scorching with the intense heat of desire, longing.

But now, I feel exceedingly cold within.

Just like the renowned Ice Queen

Whose trust in humanity was broken to her chagrin,

Ever since you committed the venial sin

Of ignoring the Garden of Love I was tending

My fragile heart needs immediate mending.

I find it hard to breathe

As the heavy air stifled my breathing

Forcing myself to stop pining,

Numbing my broken soul and my bruised feelings.

I gave you my all but what did it yield?

Nothing but a small glance,

A modicum of chance

Whenever you see fit.

Now I’m nothing but a ghost in the shell.

Living in a limbo,

Trapped in a Nightmare on Elm Street.

Oh please, I beg for my release.

Unchain me and let me be free.

Love Me, Desire Me, or Let Me Be.

What will it be?

Voracious Eater

With all the delicacies

Being offered in the buffet

Spanning a lifetime’s party;

The appetite I have 

Can be satisfied

By you only.

This immense thirst I have 

Of your affection 

Can’t be quenched by anyone

Who keeps on flocking in my direction

To get a drop of my attention.

Albeit having a voracious appetite,

I’m still a picky eater 

That never settles for anything 

I don’t desire in my platter.

It’s all about standards,

One thing’s for sure,

I’ve got an immense hunger 

For it’s you I want to savour.

Just like a favored entrée,

You leave me wanting more.

Come-hither and satiate 

My heart, mind, body and soul.

When love’s not reciprocated but merely taken…here’s for you guys that are suffering:



You cannot own me

Now that

My heart, mind, body and soul 

Is eternally free.

Unhampered, unshackled 

By unwanted emotions 

That once threatened to ravage me

And destroy the last scintilla of hope

I have left for humanity.

The death of my mortal body

When you chose to

Pull my heart out of my frail body;

And left trails and pools of blood

Without sparing a glance

Enabled the harsh reality to dawn on me.

These callous actions liberated me, empowered me.

Now here I am amongst the Gods

Whilst they bow before me,

Who are you, mere human

To desire the inner Goddess  

I have within me?

I was utterly spellbound the moment I met him. For some unknown reasons I can’t seem to look away from him. It’s as if my whole being was begging for him, craving for his attention. It’s as if he’s someone I’m meant to be with because I usually feel nothing from men who sought my affections. There’s this spark that suddenly ignites in my heart, mind and soul; and those eyes, yes, they held me captive. But for how long?
