a poem by Nishant Gupta

I set for a journey
With something in my mind
I walked across the art
In the museum of my heart
Through the pipes of feelings
Right into the vault
Where I kept my crystal
My crystal of love
imbibed in a ring
The ring so green
Just like the forest
So dense and so green
Green with the poison
I hid in my heart
That is now a potion
A potion of love
The potion that I take
To cool my fire
That burns me inside
Like an engine
But now I’ve cooled
And turned so quiet
And also the journey
Is about to finish
I’ve found what I’d thought
For a long time
Someone to be just mine
To whom I’ll give
The ring of the forest
And the crystal of my love
