Whispers Of Night


You Found It Only By Chance


The bitter mercury of life is washed away

as the last hours of night are cast aside,

and deep down, in your embrace, the light

mingles with the blight, reaching the dawn!



I cannot hold longer a minute rushing by

nor stop the time..love, just keep in mind,

not all the feelings last for lifetime.

but you..well, you found it only by chance!



Could you retrace what you once lost

among quivering ashes of a fire long dead?

maybe only by chance-just for a while,

I will enjoy the warm sunrise of a smile!

    I hate when people comment on your poem just to tell you to read their poems too.
    Nice poem, tough it's a bit abstract for my liking. (Report) Reply
