Love


I have remained here
Alone and tired
Waiting for the lillies in vain
In season and out of season
What I saw and cherished
Which nurtured my heart
And lulled me away from the world
Has grown Wings.
It has flown away and It is flying
Its trail missed in the clouds.
I have gone to the beach
Where It once crystallized into a cuddle
Only shingles loyal to gravity
Lay sea-worn like me
Crushed by loneliness.
I have looked for It in bed
Beside me only its house I saw
Taunting me in diatribes.
I have seen It
Looming before me
Looking at me
When I spread my arms
Ready to to cuddle
It cringed away
Leaving me here a ghost!
I am lovesick, imprisoned
In this want for this long,
My manhood casted into a leaf
Wilted by the geysers of its dearth
I am here
Watching It
Grumbling at me
My waiting a letdown.

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
