The Poison Ivy


Loneliness is the poison ivy…
When you plant it in your bedroom
She’ll spread her roots to rip your carpet,
You have to walk barefoot on the naked floor;
More you look at her she would melt your heart,
You can be rude at times but can never rebuke;
She steals your thoughts and plays with your mind-
Your hands are tied already for her tears are so wet!
You water her caringly while she waters your thirst-
She cleverly enters your life like a poet’s muse,
Slowly dissolving in drink to make you addict;
You think you can get used to the trance,
Each day her sparks get more intense
Alluring you with her acid charm…
Loneliness is your poison ivy
You come to make out someday-
And you cry to be that old freeman…
Even forgetting the one who left you lonely!
