Poet-Today | Abdulsamad Papilo | The Arts-Muse Fair


A puppeteer of my mind you bewilder my every thought
The good and bad you bind
And sail to your cessation court
My intuitions become blind
And for your directions I sort.

A conjurer of my emotions
I'm so subsumed in your shadow
My instincts are open to seductions
To your lead I now follow
My psyche yearning for solutions
As my sanity is carved hollow

You invade my delicate sentience
And arrest my fickle conscience
My wit is devoid of patience
It bows to your seductive presence
Like was drowned the Pharaoh of yore who was full of incense  
Only divinity can end for me this bleak sentence
