The Obsessive Agony Of Lust

By Chinedu Dike

Self lost in obsessive agony,
Your primal curiosity – a burning ferocity,
The raging fire consumes your dignity,
And shame put to slumber.

Seduced by the wayward twin of Love,
Powers of deviation subdued,
On pathway of despair you tread:
A burden too heavy to bear.

Mind drowning in bitter-sweetened sensation,
Onto elusive dream you hold fast –
Which vanishes like mirage in a vast
Desert: a lethal blend of hope and anxiety.

Raving lunatic you’ve become,
Seeking savage-desire’s fulfillment:
An ugly reflection of nature devoid of contentment.
Lust: a bad dream in the forlorn bed of infatuation.
