Tale of the imploring exorcist

Sipping a little of you
every night, keeps me high.
Imbibing a little more
may seem harmless
ah! what a ruse, to whom do I lie,
but let me get drunk all over again
for I have seen monsters
thriving, festering in the sober men.
I can denounce them, I can trounce them,
but not the one raging within.

I must drink a little more
to be human once again.

Loving you every night
makes me wake up with a high.
Making love a little more
may seem like stretching
the mornings only too far,
but let me love you all over again
for I have seen demons
sulking, scheming inside the heartless men.
I can get them exposed, get them disposed
but not the cold-blooded one thriving within.

I must love a little more
and remain a human till I can.

Seeking you every night
gives me solace, gives me a sound sleep.
Craving for you, your presence, a little more
may seem hopeless,
the futility leads me to the lands of the insane,
but let me start my prayers all over again
for I have seen devils
consuming, gnawing at the minds of faithless men
I can preach them, I can breach them
but not the heretic questioning me within.

I must lose myself in you a little more
to be called a human once again.

  1. The reiterating couplet; the final paragraph; and that dramatic contradiction and dilemma between good and evil, the personal and the perceived, words and actions – so well woven that no praise or applause can do justice to! An awe inspiring, thought provoking piece, this! πŸ‘

  2. I must lose myself in you a little more
    to be called a human once again: For me, this is a perfect expression of how we need to connect with someone else and, in becoming one, feel our rough edges softening. Or forget inner conflict and live in the moment. I loved your poem.
