Poisoned

by Sanjida Shaheed

Bismillah

Ah!

This pain!
This pain!!

What did I do
To deserve this?

Could it be true?

That I am loved
By You?

Only love
Unleashes poison.

And it baffles
Reason.

Poison!

Poison for Love!
By Love!
With Love!

Poison that strokes
Inside
My throat.

Poison that chokes
The breath
In my chest.

Poison that burns
My body
And my limbs.

Poison that numbs
The thoughts
In my head.

Poison it is
That I must endure.

To slay
What lies.

Between Love
And the lover.

I sacrifice my self
To win
Love’s favour.

It must wither.

It does not belong
In this abode
Of Love.

But
It longs
To stay.

So poison it is
That must
Drive it away.
