Difference!


Vast as ocean, apart as grains
I could remember...
no songs of love,
no voice of hate
So... warm during day
and... cool in night
... you stretched your arm initiating a relation! ! !
in the next moment...
I slipped off your hand...
When I was SAND!

..........

My tired soul
and endless journey
unbearable distance... it is my love!
If this is my life!
I am to die...
split up myself... pieces into pieces
approaching my love
with countless kisses
bleeding fast, screaming loud...
When I am CLOUD!

    Sand slips and cloud breaks up and disperses. Let me be something different to approach love. Nice imagination. Thank you. (Report) Reply

    Sand and cloud...The symbols are carefully chosen. Good. I liked it. At your age, love poems are natural for you. 'Cool in the night'. Kindly re-write as 'Cool at night'. This is what my teacher says from the corner of my mind! . Thanks for sharing. (Report) Reply
