I am toxic

















I am toxic, 
And I am telling you in advance. 
I'll soon become a part of you, 
And will be audible in the thumping of your heart,
I will seamlessly merge into your regular breathing pattern,
I'd become the beginning of your days, and nights,
 
I'd be around when you are still, 

And I'd be there when you turn into a noise. 

I will make you get used to me, and nothing else, 

I will make sure that your worries disappear at the touch of me
I will ensure that there is a hollow lurching feeling in the absence of me
You will carry me all over you, 

I will be a part of your thoughts, your talks, and your silences too
I will conquer all these zones,
and will make sure there is no place for anything else.
 

I will make you feel stronger when I am around,
You'd be the most comfortable with me in your life

Your words, your phrases, your prose and your verse will be me,
I will turn you into a poet.

And then one day,
 

I will secretly slip away. 
You wouldn’t even believe what just happened to you,
I will disappear, sometimes, like a water bubble,
or other times like a grand deafening blast,
In both the cases,
You’d see your world crumbling down.

You’d hate me but I promise
I will be back.
I will be back to bring you back to life.
