Your nectar

By Sandip Saha

PROMPT — What is Love?

I am amazed in your beauty

it is the touch stone to forget

the predicament in the well of life

in which I have fallen unwillingly.

Your soft face, long dense black hair

attract me with a great force

that I cannot overcome

and get lost in it.

When deprivation makes face

with ugly laughter at me

I dip in you unknowingly

to get solace from pain.

When the ruler of creation

does everything wrong

as it has no heart but a rotten head

I get relief in you a great deal.

When my poems get no reader

when editors discard my efforts

months after months no acceptance

I again find in you a great friend.

There are all ill eyes

that see only wrong

and carnal connection

I enjoy your nectar.
