In Black Lingerie

let me not die
lying in my own
excrement
wrapped in an adult diaper
changed
when
it suits the maid

with gloved hands
wrinkling her nose
in disgust

let me not die
with
the ignominy of
having to lie bare
while she wipes me
as she would
glassware

let me die
whilst my nights are still young 
in
black
lace lingerie
seductively peeping through
a sheer negligee
in the spotlight of
twin pools 
of desire 
shining bright
in your eyes

About Elizabeth Kuriakose

A hectic career as a banker and looking after family kept me busy for ages. Quit my job to look after family. Once the children were old enough to take care of themselves, I discovered my love for writing in late 2014. Words in poetry or prose have been my constant companion thence on.
