Alive (for Aftab Alam)


Poetry's alive,
but what's that other
thing that eats me...

There's living it,
as well as having it,
in mind...

I cannot live you all
my life,

And this is love, and maybe
why I write it,

Afraid that it might dry up,
more than a very arid desert
can bare,

So why beat me up - words?

I've given you the vow one,
which is where I want to be,
on top of all meaninglessness's,

Of course I love you,
I just don't trust you as much
as I want to..

And don't ever expect me to come
back crying again over -

Spilt words.

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Scott

The moon's on the lake, and the mist's on the brae,
And the Clan has a name that is nameless by day;
Then gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
Gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
