Children Of The Storm

Night after day clouds draw blueprints
Of promises we should not repeat
Mistakes of those before us
Threaten we'll get burned and then retreat

However, we exchange kisses aloud
So carelessly proud of love
That to world is but a thorn in the heel
As if it was a shame to feel...

Sweet moments are meant just for rent
Cunning books viciously say
While subtle faces give us sour grins
Then quickly look away

Is this what we've been searching for?
I neither know nor care
What matters at the end of day
Is whether you are there

I don't mind if sky's overcast
May rain fall down with walls
In your arms I found home at last
And when the thunder calls

Two children of the storm we are
Our foreheads make the roof
Drenched with downpour but soaked with love
As heart is waterproof

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
