Genie and the Magic Lamp
I wonder what brings you here
It's not your love for me
It's not your enthusiasm for what I write
It's not your curiosity for my wellness.
Why are you here then?
I know, you come to seek you
Because, you know you are in here
Hidden between the alphabets,
Weaved in tight, beyond escape.
I rub the lamp and you appear, my genie
With your magic powers, you make peacocks,
frogs, snakes and lizards appear.
Peacocks are alluring,
Frogs, snakes and lizards scare me,
How playful of you!
You keep me enticed, then disappear
I snared you in, my fingers freed you and
I gave you these powers
Yet, I wonder, Am I the genie, and you my master?
