Stranger


You are only a far away stranger,
Who's trying to enter my mind.
In the wildness you're messing with danger,
For my nature you're deaf, dumb and blind.

I am not an enjoyable pleasure.
Even if I am blessed with a beauty.
And my conscience you don't have to measure,
It is only a terrible duty.

Stay away - I am happy in lonelyness,
In the noise I am losing my mercy.
I'm not asking for virtues or holyness,
In the ocean still sailors are thirsty.

    This is number 1000 of poems I've read this week, and I must say that it is my favorite.

    It screams to be read!
    or fed to those who are bound,
    A smile a tease,
    a flirt in the breeze,
    How powerful I know I am,
    the loneliness, the quiet sound.
    I love the up and the down. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Young Love lies sleeping
In May-time of the year,
Among the lilies,
Lapped in the tender light:
White lambs come grazing,
White doves come building there:
