Certainly Not Low Me


The air's light while moon shines bright.
I'm quite fine tonight.
Suddenly, things ain't they seemed.
Lights around gleam dim.

I see none thru my window;
None but you alone.
The one I'd given green rose,
But you got it blown.

You judged my songs just by tones.
‘Twas clear what you meant.
But have you tried their lyrics once?
Do consider them.

Worthless words you used to throw;
It made me not low.
You're lost, gone with the flow,
Hit by a strong blow.

Sorrow occupied your core.
Watch me now glowing.
Feel me right from your cold world,
Keep your eyes open.

If ever you'll apologize,
I'll have my inks dry.
I've been waiting all the while,
Hear now my heart's sigh.

Poem of the Day

poet Pablo Neruda

I want you to know
one thing.

You know how this is:
if I look
at the crystal moon, at the red branch
of the slow autumn at my window,
if I touch
