NaPoWriMo 2021 – DAY 01 – My Poetry Is A Lovechild

Of sins and monsters

intertwined; Between

the pages of stale love stories,

verses of unfinished poetries,

and apostrophes, there is desire which

renders you sleepless even at 3 am.

How does one serenade the other when

love is just another monster sleeping

beside you, resolute in making you

a recipe of disaster and serve it with the first rays of sun.

The golden hyperbole of romanticism

chokes your ego into oblivion even before it

could bat its eyelashes.

 

I fall in and out of love even

faster than words leave my mouth, like tangerine promises

broken even before they were made.

My poetry is a lovechild born out of wedlock

when metaphors made love to the monster sleeping

beside me.

When is a monster not a monster?

When you desire for it and you smile back at it,

When its fingertips run through your spine

and you feel your cheeks flushing.

You live under the tender wraps of a

hibernating disaster

intertwined between;

the pages of stale love stories,

verses of unfinished poetries,

and apostrophes.
