Words and Voices: Love

Words and Voices: Love

Love

by Nachiket Vaidya


Love
Is like
the fire
Which burnt the city
Of Troy

Love
Is like
A spy who
Can defect, deceive
And betray

Love
Is like
A pill which
Can you take again
And again till
You OD

Love
Is like
That language which
You can’t decipher
Or understand
Just speak

Love
Is like
The vibe
Which makes you blush
For a fleeting second
Of an eternity

Love
Is like
That moment which
You can’t understand
Why you’re
Afraid

Love
Is like
That war
With no winners
Only survivors

Love
Is like
When you trap
The smoke of a cigarette
Inside and
Feel it
Suffocate you

Love
Is like
That dagger which
You can’t remove from
Your heart

Love
Is like
That drink which
Burns your insides
But you can’t
Stop drinking

Love
Is like
That hole which
You fill only
With more
Holes

Love
Is like
That agony
Which you want to feel
Again and again
And again and
Again and
Again…
