Khairul Ahsan


Drifted Away...


I wanted to give her a sky,
She opted for just a cloud,
A patch of soft, white cloud,
In the azure sky. Then, she hid
Herself behind it, and with it,
Right before my two eyes,
Rode away in a graceful glide,
Slowly drifting away, to obscurity!

    This poem has a very unique set up. I like the way it flows and the first line is a real attention grabber. It's a very romantic piece. (Report) Reply
