Time Bomb


You took my breath away,
Left me gasping for more and more,
The starvation in your eyes hunts me like its prey,
The shifting burden of pain in my core.

Your gaze pierces through me like its a laser,
I am burning up and getting drunk on your lies,
Your touch is tender yet it feels like a taser,
I am falling apart and surviving your lows and highs.

Pull me close or let me go,
Don’t leave me hanging through this fall,
Burn me in your passion or let us blow,
I am a time bomb ready to explode.

You feast on the thought of our ‘Forever’,
It’s incredible how you celebrate our doom with me,
You stab the virtue in its back with your endeavors,
How fortunate you are to have me begging on my knees.

Your soul feeds on my cherry lips,
I am loud in silence and getting your stains off my skin,
Your heart seizes my mortality for it knows the love in my blood can drip,
I am living the best at my worst and the worst at my best for all my sins.

Pull me close or let me go,
Don’t leave me hanging through this fall,
Burn me in your passion or let us blow,
I am a time bomb ready to explode.

Writing is my passion and that is what I do here on this blog. I write about everything, whether it be Nature, Love, Hate, Relationships, Humans, Personal Life (where I discuss lessons learnt through real-life experiences), Food, Philosophy (sometimes) and much more. I write in any form whether it be Prose or Poetry. I am in search of ‘Myself’, hence there is not much I can tell you about me. Perhaps, I have a very brilliant idea. Why don’t you come along with me on my journey? I will always care to share and you can also enjoy the ride. For now, this is it. I am ‘ME’ – a wanderer in search of a fulfilling life. Until next time, Love Living Life! I express my sincere gratitude to all my Readers! -Naima

  1. You’re back! Naima, we’ve missed you! And you come back powerfully. This one reads like it should be set to music, with a chorus refrain and all. I’m trying to decide if it’s Pat Benatar, Nancy Wilson, or Natalie Merchant singing this. 😉 Tell the truth… who did you have in your head as you wrote this? I love it. 🙂

    • Goodness Lace, i have missed your blog myself. The law school did start with a blow leaving me no time for the blog and you know that it is so not easy to blog. It requires time which I didbt have much during the term but with winter break around the corner, i’d have a lot of time to myself for reading and writing :))
      Yeah, i wanted it to be more like a song than a poem. I’d give it to Natalie Merchant if I’d have a choice although I have never heard of Nancy Wilson.
      And yes, there is a mystery man who will remain a mystery for myself as well. Lol
      Thank you for your comment, your feedback is always appreciated.

      With love,

      PS– i read your twitter post and trust you me, twitter is one complication in life lol I will still have to catch up on your blog which I will do soon 🙂

  2. For a human being, explosions are better than implosions. Good Writing!

  3. A very emotionally stimulating piece, Naima. Enjoyed reading. So good to see you back among us. 🙂
