Blue Sorrow


Coming to the seashore quietly
I gazed out over the boundless sea
Endless worries
were dominating my surging heart
In which
The past was flying.

Enlightened by Buddha
I obtained a great kind heart
With elevated affections
I fell on my knees by Cupid
And all of a sudden my dream of love
Fled
That walked out the tent
Is a bosom Brother, not the fancy man.

Nothing is more dreadful than being desperate
The rocks in the sea
Robbed all love away, without a tiny bit left
The sea rolled on
While tears of grievance were flowing adown
Blue was the sea
Blue sorrow

    Nothing is more dreadful than being desperate. Those lines echo throughout and speak the volume of the poem. A longing for a love that is often times abusive just by the nature of humanity is difficult but I love how the water erodes the rocks over time chipping away bits and pieces of ones heart while waiting for the ocean to embrace the rocks gliding over them gently so as to not injure them. Very nicely done. You say a lot on the surface but speak even louder with what is lying beneath. Again Nicely done. Allan Gerard~ (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:
