Monster in my head

(NOTE: this is a work of fiction)

There’s a monster laid within my head who’s
ripping springs and chewing strings,
unravelling cords that bind my broken heart within.
Such a sneaky set of teeth it must possess!
to have the superpower
to so simply tear apart my strands of
horrible uncertainty,
and gnaw away the knots of fear
that’s fastened tight around my throat.

You’re not an ‘it’, I realise, but a paradox
of beauty in disaster; a breath in breathlessness –
unusual piece of messy art whose every bitten laugh is
drawn upon my messy mind,
eating up my every thought – except the one that wonders why

so eagerly you swallow all my bitter tears,
embrace my pain with yours; why you
reach beyond my chest and into tangled mess,
viewing all the cracks and crevices with a gentleness that
every other eye neglects?
Tell me why you lay so close when I am all but warm –
other creatures run away, why do you choose to stay?

But you bare your teeth at questions from my doubtful lips, and
enclose your arms about my frosty chest, till I’m melting

little by little, till I’m bare and warm and
ocean wide – unbound by ropes, and sailing into
vastness, away from narrow visions washed ashore.
Entranced I am by flaws that make you not monstrous but
daringly human – daring to love, daring to be loved.

    Thanks God you mentioned that it is a work of fiction; otherwise, I would have been jealous about you; that at last you found one person

    “Tell me why you lay so close when I am all but warm –
    other creatures run away, why do you choose to stay?”:

    I wish, one day this fiction become fact……..
    Wishing you all the best………………

        Do you know; when this fiction will become facts; I will be the happiest person on this earth; because, you are very nice, humble and soft-heart person, and when such a person suffers; simply, my heart felt very bad, though, I cannot do anything; but yes, I do have a very good & great connection with GOD; so, don’t worry your message been already sent, let him answer your call.
        Second; frankly speaking; regarding poetry my knowledge is very poor but by going through google search I found that “An acrostic is a poem or other form of writing in which the first letter, syllable or word of each line, paragraph or other recurring feature in the text spells out a word or a message-Wikipedia”
        So, going through it;

      Yes, I truly agree with you; just one correction; apart from this, if you read other poetry written by KATHO- you will enjoy it; believe me, I hardly know anything about poetry but it is through this blog; I fall in love of poetry….
      Wishing you all the best…………………………
