My ode to Fernando Pessoa

My ode to the greatest writer Fernando Pessoa..I call him,The Intruder...

The Intruder

Earlier He gave me an impression of a kindred spirit..

A true soulmate..

Now He is demanding all my time..my attention...

I could neither bear the darkness of the deep abyss of his thoughts nor the brightness of the wildfire of his being..

Beware,His illuminating soul would sweep you off  your feet...

I would feel his eternal presence...He was there in everything I do...everything I say..

My mind So full of his chattering..

They'd ask me,'Why are you so absent minded?'...'Self-absorbed?'

Can't they see,He possessed me ??  Or I possessed him !!

He is present when I myself am absent to the world...

I can see now,He is nothing but an unwanted acquaintance..A dangerous company..

The beloved intruder I couldn't get rid of..
