Make Me a Pendulum

Make Me a Pendulum

A Poem by ShameemAkhtar

Wrap your hands
around my neck
and make me a pendulum
of your embrace

Toss me

Toss me forth
Toss me back
Toss me

And make me the hands of time

Dance me
One step forward
One back
Dance me

Make me prisoner

Toss me in the golden cage
of your embrace
and toss me

Let me oscillate
between the good and the bad
Let me dance
amidst the crowd of oblivion

Make me a pendulum

Until

I choke

Toss me
Until

My hands turn

360o

Brew me
Brew me with the caress of your kick

Brew me into magic
A potion
Of hatred

But toss me
In a portion of your life

Let me remain a pendulum

Toss me
Dance me
Kick me

Tighten your grip
Don’t let go

Let me be wanted
in the storm of hatred

Let me feel the bliss
of your strangle

Someone

Please soften the grasp…

In the strength of Poe's. Your words were alive and deadly. I like the flow and the ending. Than you for a excellent poem.

suffocation! but sweet...else, bittersweet one!
a very direct and clear poem which inter-cuts regularly enough to actually see and feel the graphic details!
great one!^^

I loove the burning of desire and the need to be wanted in this poem

Posted 9 Years Ago


Such a conflict of emotion is here! Such desperate needs and desires that clash and crash and envelop!

This one is really nice. The desire, the wish that you made is presented nicely here. I liked it.
