Worms or Flesh: A Poem by Dr. Richa

Related imageIt’s like worms on my flesh
Creepy and unpleasant
Sucking my blood
Causing wound
Puss and pain
I shake my body
You see it as dance
To shake off those worms
From the flesh
They suck
They bite
And scratch
I cry out of pain
You hear it as my song
Something covers my being
Either flesh or worms.



Dr. Richa is an independent researcher and a poet. She is a former Assistant Professor of English in Central University of South Bihar.
