Love In The Times Of Corona

Government proclaimed lockdown

Against a pandemic outbreak

Was the beginning of a love pandemic

Over my heart.

It has ensued like a summer rain.

The seeds of that relish began to cherish

Over my heart to all over my veins.

Then each day I found myself melting

In between every words of herself.

She plucked me from my bookshelf

To watch the romantic hop of leaves

The gala of cloud couples over the sky

The whispers of gales to breeze

To read the billet doux

Written by roses for their bees.

I dunno how I am being now

I dunno how to describe these days

I dunno how to describe herself

The one who injection DNA of Love

To my cells and broken heart.

I found king Menelaus’ helena in her.

Sometimes Juliet, Desdemona..

Now am affected by love pandemic

But once,

I stayed with my strayed thoughts.

My mind was pulled to a inferno

After the visit of several epidemics.

They infected every vein of my bliss

And injected the DNA of woe

All over my body.

Initially, I tried to treat and heal

Myself, whenever an epidemic enters.

But, with the changing calendars

I found, am getting affected with more.

Each disease born around me

Will arrive on my way to create a holocaust.

Albeit, when it turned to shake my insanity

I decided to confine myself

Within my book shelf

And to live with my strayed thoughts.

Only within a world of letters and thoughts.

Then, by the end of 2019

I heard about a pandemic

Over the shores of china

My thoughts didn’t bother about it

Because its outbreak is far from me.

Days after, I heard another news

That is the news of its advent.

Then, my thoughts scribbled the title

“Death in the times of corona”

On my writing pad.

As I expected

Nothing good will arrive on my way

But only every holocaust.

As an unexpected twist, then

Her pandemic love arrived

On my shore to erase the corona fear.

Now everything changed within few days.

Covid 19 Lockdown turned me

To get locked within her

And Today, my romantic thoughts

Scribbled the title

“Love in the times of Corona”

On the walls of beating heart.
