Tough Love!

It fills me with ruth and empathy

as you continue to mark my body with cuts and burns,

delighting over my forsaken will to fight the hostility

sucking away even the last few droplets of hope and elation.

I willingly embrace all your tortures and afflictions

for I am engraving my pictures in your mind

like scars of the battle-wounds that never heal

erasing the fortuity of you getting away from me.

I wouldn’t  threaten to kill you at once

for there would be no pain or penance.

What I want for you is a slow and painful death

that you will face each day until you get tired and decide to strangle yourself.

For I’ve heard that memories are the best slow poisons

that guarantee a prolonged suffering,

haunting you at places and times

making sure you get addicted to the anamnesis.


About SK Rajeshwari

I am an incurable bibliophile, dreamer, writer, poet and connoisseur of all things beautiful. This blog 'My Cosmos' is my first love and nothing pleases me more than constructive feedback for my write-ups. My second love is books. I am an insatiable and roly-poly bookworm. Books teach me how to explore the world inside me and the ones that are outcomes of someone else's unadulterated imagination. What beautifies my existence is the endless walk I enjoy putting on those shoes of imagination. Step into my world, feel my poems and allow your wandering soul to be hypnotized by the fragrance of the captivating manifestations of my dreams, experiences and imagination. Allow this feeling to creep into your being and let your nerves speak the language of beauty and artistry. Bienvenido :)

  2. made me sad, lovely poem.


  3. It is as in DiCaprio’s Inception, planting your memories in someone’s mind. As silence can be the cruel punishment u can inflict on ur loved one, memories can do the same for the departed. It can kill a thousand times!
    Nicely written. Keep writing:)
