To 'The Ocean Of Love'


My poems, perhaps reach you no more,
My words come back from your door,
Unread and unheard.
I pick them up, can't look at their eyes,
Set them free, to fly away to the skies,
My eyes get blurred.

My messages, too, are welcome no more,
They are not eagerly awaited, as before,
With as much ardor.
There is no way that I can call them back,
As their voyage was on a one way track,
So, they'll wait in the harbor............

Of 'The Ocean of Love'!

    I sincerely hope your poems and messages and feelings do not have to wait in that vast 'ocean of love' for too long a time. This poem touches the heart and soul, beautifully. (Report) Reply

    Poignantly lovely. It's sad when meaningful words fall on barren land - or a huge ocean, as you see it here. But i like the parallel with the harbour - sign of optimism, too. Excellent poem, worthy of a ten. (Report) Reply

    Passionate. Clear. Perfect! I really liked it. Despite the fact that it's short, the message is clear. A ten from me! (Report) Reply

    At times our words come back to us unread or unheard! That's painful! But still let them loose...! Don't chain them! You may see them safely anchored in some harbour in the ocean of love! Sharp and poignant write! ! (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet John Gay

Friendship, as love, is but a name,
Save in a concentrated flame;
And thus, in friendships, who depend
On more than one, find not one friend.

A hare who, in a civil way,
