The other day, I stumbled onto 'Love',
It looked me in the eye,
With its eyes so deep, dark ,mysterious;
Swooning me , hypnotizing me , captivating me.
I evidently gazed back.
As love slowly crawled into me,
Piercing my chest,
Running through my vessels,
corroding and eroding every barrier ;
Making its way to my entire entity,
Benumbing my wits,
And then carefully ripping my heart in bits.
All through this I kept staring with adulation.
In a trice,
Blood started gushing out, my breath had started fading,
Aah the pain!
Aah the pleasure!
It was then that I grasped,
' Love' had me trapped.
Too late, I smiled feebly;
Dazed but transfixed, slowly gave out a sigh
and looked on with my half open eyes
As it steadily devoured me.
I could never shift my gaze.
