Victim

a poem by Animesh Kulshrestha

I heard somebody cursing, screaming inside me
Even I tried, but could not, blame my destiny!

It was just an affair, I tried to make myself understand
The biggest mistake of my life, that one night stand

I was on a journey, away from my happy family
My intoxicated lust made me do a thing so silly.

Today I think, I could have taken some precaution,
Should not have strayed or used some protection

A unique gift on thanksgiving, today I have to give,
Me, her and our two year kid are all HIV positive.

Life seems like a nightmare, or some devils fiction,
As my family becomes the victim of my action
