Poetic escape


Your poetry takes me away
away from the madness
away from the pain
away from everything
that reminds me again
of how I hurt you
So right you were;
love and pain are eternally bound
they reside within the same sound
yet even then I find myself
floating away with your words
Amazing how simple a few lines
laced with emotions
like love and desire
words like care and kindness
how strung together
become the beauty of poetry;
simplicity
A chemistry of emotions
that leaves me breathless
and smiling
You always did make me smile
You are my poetic escape

Poem of the Day

poet Christopher Marlowe

It lies not in our power to love or hate,
For will in us is overruled by fate.
When two are stripped, long ere the course begin,
We wish that one should love, the other win;
