Again and again......(Lothario's lisp)


I quiver, the day is here an no time is left.
when heavens will fall, when life is bereft
in despair I craze, must I part with my bliss?
wounded my heart; aches for the slaking kiss

woe to me; o why did I love my only friend.
twinge lurks in every shadow; times to an end.
My misery unheard; why should it so descend,
its farewell then? that's fate? Can't we pretend?

I'll befuddle, stare the roof in an empty bed.
punishing my ears; straining for your tread,
yearn for your gleaming eyes, to hold your hand
lingering memories, empty fists an shifting sand

O' I breathe your smile, softly call your name,
days an nights merge to mingle with your frame
my life forever changed never to be the same
I wish you knew dear, that this isn't just a game

lucky I am to have felt this intense emotion.
to remain my obsession, my life's only notion,
I writhe and consume what we could be together.
Wafting of a breeze the feel of a silky feather

Times flown; my hair graying my soul is fraying
you across oceans, I impaled, alone, slaying
Solace In memories or pretense in praying
Gaping, aping, numbed an silent yet saying

You smile to me through the world of flowers
Shine an gleam at me in the vastness of stars
you brighten each year with the colors of spring
lend your sweet incense to each an every thing

I've felt you in blistering deserts in gales an pouring rain
As events drag my body and make me go insane
Forever I relive goodbyes an feel the wrenching pain,
If I had the gift of lives, I would love you again an again!

    Love is an overpowering emotion in the poet's heart and being away from the beloved it deepens more and more as the feeling that time's passing on becomes painful. It's very emotional and romantic. (Report) Reply

    Such sad longing - neither time nor distance can dull the intensity of true love's emotional hold on us. So bittersweet - as they say, 'it is better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all', but that doesn't take away the pain. Strong, powerful and well done!

    There's much passion, strong rhyming, and well contrived discernible rhythm in this Saadat. You've clearly applied yourself to the crafting aspect of the business and that always adds to the reading experience. I enjoyed this Saadat. Thank you. jim (Report) Reply

    The memories in the heart will never part however far we may depart! True love is a union of heart, mind and soul the body is only a vestament [a cloak]. Good flow of words and thought! (Report) Reply
