Daughter Of Eve


Here I stand
Just outside your well guarded heart
Heavily fenced like a palisade
Hard to penetrate

The closer I come
The farther you become
Can't it just be a sheer heart?
So everything in it we share?
Your feelings are in your silence
Your silence is words
Your words are parable
Your parable I can't fathom
Like a wind
You whirl and twirl me around

You cry with your smiles
The smile in your tears
Opaque heart
How will one ever know
What it withholds
Oh daughter of precious Eve!

Poem of the Day

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

O World! O Life! O Time!
On whose last steps I climb,
Trembling at that where I had stood before;
When will return the glory of your prime?
No more -Oh, never more!
