Heaven or Hell?

 

I have a heaven and hell in me
which swim to the illusive surface
with every living breath I exhale,
unknowing, I edifice my own future!

It’s a game of my impish senses
flows stream of emotions sans fences
with vain taste, sight, touch and olfaction,
I spin a magnetic web of temptation!

Images of myriad hues in periphery
corrupted into exciting desires, envy
somewhere I lose my hold and Lo!
I have made entrance into hell’s door!

At times I lock up my senses in safety
in order to sight peace in heart’s cavity
but it eludes my grip, not lasting long
Charm of external influence proves strong!

Experiences short yet blissful embellish
unknown terrains awaiting to be relished
reassure me to assay into alleys aware
to design my own destiny of heaven or hell!

    The Miltonic resonance aside, the poem seizes the essence of the thematic concerns in language of admirable transparency.Lovely !

    Smoothly it unveiled of our own grey cells and it’s vulnerability, mysticism. An in-depth contemplative philosophical write with keen sense of surrender and helplessness.. Beautiful !
