Giving up

Slowly, Steadily,it creeps
Eating me up from within
Be oblivious I say to self
But my self doesn't pay heed.
Giving up slowly I realise,
it is a slow poison, working
cunningly maliciously in me.

I have to combat, I say
running helter-skelter,
finding my refuge in 
spirits, herb and smoke, 
my antidotes.

Now, my body harbours two beings
One, closer to that supernatural
and damaged by thoughts. Other,
plunged in thoughts far from Above
supported by fellow free spirits.

Behind all those smiles, leaps
fooleries, cackles, 
lies a pool of tears.
Pat on the back to self, each day
for the commendable show put up.

Now, its time. "Enough!", 
said the softer voice.
time to break open and 
stand up against the enemies.
Time for the one to crush
the other being from within. 

But somewhere the softer being 
knows that it ain't so easy
and with that thought, it
crumbles, giving it all up.

Be Naked to me

What is your truth?
who are you?
I don't know whether
this is the being who 
seems to be you

Remove that mask,
tell me your story,
be naked to me, 
Emotionally.

How do you expect me
to trust you with 
everything that I own?
If there is a constant 
apprehension in me.

Remove that mask,
tell me your story,
be naked to me, 
Psychically.

I am certain, it is 
not my insecurities 
that speak now.
It is a voice from 
within, free now.

Remove that mask,
tell me your story,
be naked to me,
Mentally.

It is that voice 
which you have for so long
stubbed, just as you would, 
to your cigarette.
It is time, tell me.

Remove that mask,
Tell me your story,
only then, be naked to me,
Physically.
