A Plaintive Why


During the day
When I sit in my room
I can´t do anymore
My lotus position

Clouds cover the moon
No tears drip
From my eyes
But burning
All sucked lies
Out of my mind
To wash my palm white

Invisible stars
Are collecting your name
Write you my desire
In love we are the same
Your voice is gone
But your picture stay

As well as your absence
Is inhaled into mine
With all your love
Entailed in my shrine
Wrote your name in heaven
To have you as mine

Every day & night
For my solution
On earth
And for every cry
Sketching your face
Like my fingers fly

Connecting my soul
With yours in the sky
Holding you fast
And drinking your cry
Like a plaintive why.

Poem of the Day

poet John Gay

Friendship, as love, is but a name,
Save in a concentrated flame;
And thus, in friendships, who depend
On more than one, find not one friend.

A hare who, in a civil way,
