Best Poem of Ben Paynter

I Fought Love, But

inevitably
you feel
yourself taken
into it all

like a flash
like a beat
of a drum
come to
make you
dance

Read the full of I Fought Love, But

Only Ashes Are Completed

Only rain can tumble slowly
Plummeting towards the ground
Laughing at the fate before it
Dancing softly falling down

Only sound can meet the silence
Half between a fleeing squall
Mending fissures silence opened
Building up the fallen walls

[Hata Bildir]
