My Love Like Covid

My Love Like Covid

A Poem by DIVYA

My love like covid, you have been 
A germ of loathing and unease
Though you sicken my air, unseen
My lungs you couldn't ever seize

In quest of me, you sought the seas 
My love like covid, you have been 
Lurking in every cough and sneeze
Of you, my bronchioles stayed clean 

They think you're potent and mean
I think you're a done disease
My love like covid, you have been 
You fizzled out, a wretched wheeze 

You were but an infected breeze 
Not meriting even vaccine  
Disowned even by the Chinese 
My love like covid, you have been

What a playful way to depict toxic love using a strong metaphor like covid. I admire your approach when it comes to sensitive topics like these, the unique metaphors you use makes your poem/poems truly exceptional. Through your words, I can experience the unexperienced. I could feel the complexities of having a virus like person in one's life. It is always a joy to read your work, Divya.

Wishing you a beautiful day and stay safe, dear friend :)

I know it's for fun, and that's the way you portrayed it...if your love is like COVID, then there is no reason to keep it....it's a different kind of disease...called " falling out of love".... do not try to enhance it, just leave an unhappy situation...love the way you compared this scene to a love in trouble...
Warmly, B

Thank you so much for the kind review, Sameeksha.
Loved the play in this. The metaphor here was great. The courage to use such an emotionally loaded topic is amazing. I take my hat off to you for that. I lacked the courage to take on this topic. Yes love is like Covid it is infectious, vacines are questionable can be fatal often its effects are exaggerated and sometimes underestimated. It is worldwide and affects some and others no. A fun and wonderful write

Thank you so much, dear Thomas. I enjoyed penning this. :)
Definitely an original idea, this one! I had missed the whole cafe COVID period and probably for the best, too. I imagine there were quite a few poems written about the virus and pandemic to make one as sick as catching the virus itself.

Your personification of the virus is quite inspired and ohh so relatable! There is nothing more annoying than having a defective, infective presence attempting to infiltrate our lungs and spread their disease. A disease riddled presence that does not even deserve to be eliminated by a vaccine, is certainly a presence escaped from the most vile of Petri dishes.

Far more than being a poetic comment on Covid and it’s deleterious effects, your poem speaks of those pesky unseen viruses that lurk silently in the air around us just waiting for the right moment to pounce and infiltrate our body and affect our minds. Thankfully, our natural immune response has more than enough power to keep such impotent viruses at bay. The dirty little buggers will always keep trying, though!

This was certainly a delight to read and your fun approach to creating this piece is definitely reflected in your lines. Your distaste for such viruses is even more potent, however, and the disgust for such presences is the overwhelming theme of the poem.

An excellent read. Well composed.

A really unique relation you brought with covid. I quite like it :) The powerlessness of this love you mention struck a chord with me.
