Eczema

Your thoughts
Are like the
Itches of
Eczema

I scratch
Them away

They subside
For a while…

Then come back
Again with
Renewed force
And energy
Imposing
Themselves
On me

Thus begins
The
Never-ending
Cycle of
Itching and
Scratching…

How discomforting
How profusely
Tiring…

Yet
There are no
Steroids -
In this world
That can stop
The eczema
Of your
Thoughts
From
Resurfacing…

No, Flame Ji.

How can we keep you at bay ?!

Boloji will miss your poetry.

Thanks also for reviewing my 'Detonate' and 'Write' poems.
