MY LOVE AFTER YOU


The sun rises once again
A awakening me from the clam of night before
Where I could hear nothing but the sound of silence
Where I could feel nothing but the breath of my soul
With the majesty of the morning sun,
comes with it the sorrows of my life,
Where the realities of losing you haunt me,
Where the shadows of my past taunt me
Cries of mine to you to return,
Falls upon the ground below
Like the autumn leaves which drops from the above
Like the droplets of the rain from the clouds beyond reach
The war within my heart
Hides between the shadows of the dark
Praying for the night for it all to go away again.

Poem of the Day

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
