“At one magical instant in your early childhood, the page of a book—that string of confused, alien ciphers—shivered into meaning. Words spoke to you, gave up their secrets; at that moment, whole universes opened. You became, irrevocably, a reader.” –Alberto Manguel

Sweetest Poison

"We can't exist in the same world now. You've become Novocaine to me, but you won't ever fall for me –never. I want to lose my identity as individual, I don't want to be the citizen of the world you are in, I don't want to be recognized anyway, I don't want to share anything with you –be it love, emotions, time, days, the air you breathe, the sunshine that falls on you and I want to forget that despite not having you, losing you hurts. I want mutual antipathy to separate us and want to be irrevocably separated."

I have been drinking the hemlock;
in the name of love so pure,
it rains all inside me;
haven’t seen the sky so azure.

It’s dark, hard enough to see;
as I leave the world of my bliss,
dreams and all the memories;
that I am going to crucifix.

Even demons could wonder;
sweetest poison it has been,
killing me with no scar;
hidden, yet so serene.

Juliet is on deathbed;
Cupids stabbed her so deep,
flashback runs her through;
makes even angels weep.

Candles blew off, roses turned to pale;
when I sang this serenade,
violins broke and complain;
for the love that was never made. 

Even demons could wonder;
sweetest poison it has been,
such was love to me;
a weapon, unseen.
