Parasite- A Woman's Unconditional Love Poem

Hello. I am a literature student who just keep falling in love harder and deeper into poems. Appreciating art is my full time job!

Parasite---a poem


As much of a parasite you are,

that much of a glad host i am.

You leech of me,


so naturally accustomed.

Like a Virginia Creeper on a dry wall,

you latch onto me.

I am infected by you,


i let you.


Neither i drained,

nor emaciated.

Rather oddly, drenching in famine,

i look for ways to give you,

even more-

even more than,






A woman's love is like diving into the ocean. The deeper u go, the harder u fall in love. This poem is a brief window to a women's soul. a reflection of her true feelings, so sacred that it takes an extraordinary man to deserve her.

To express an unconditional love by reflecting it through one of the most unwanted "guest" in the system,it takes uncountable numbers of effort & unlimited feel of love to spread it and let all the host knew that it is sacred.

This is brilliant.when you change the whole perspective of humanity towards a creature called parasite from an extractor to a donor.

Write more.The world today needs this kind of mind rejuvenation after went through a number of destruction.God bless u!

Hi Shady,

Ok.personally i truly felt the poem was my mirror.it is just an excellent.The way you express some inner confusion and when you turn the natural expression which I believe was pressurised in my case, you did turned my confusion to a self respect which i might failed to look for all this time. Most people will end up failing but you just nailed it by recognising that all that negativity will result in a nothing because neither diamonds could cause harm nor get rusty.Thanks Shayeeda Shady.You just made my day
