Desperation!


One day, as I would look back,
Into my life lived all the days,
The days without you, and the nights,
Without any sleep comporting my eyes.

Those days, when I decided to call you,
Call you back into my life-
But was it my voice that failed me?
Or the air, that resisted to flow?

Those days, when I dreamt of you,
Of only you, within me, in my life-
But was it my sleep that faded?
Or your images that became blurred?

And the days, I decided to follow,
To follow you, to be united with you-
But were those my steps getting heavy?
Or was it the path that became untreadable?

All those nights, when I wanted to hug you,
To hug you, forever, safe in my arms-
Were those arms too weak to hold on?
Or was the distance too large to be safe?

All those nights, all those nights,
Haunted me; these days, these days-
What is it that lets me not sleep?
That lets me not to dream?

For every lone moment of my life,
It is no life I have lived, alone-
Is it you, or your love haunting me?
Or is it my hope leading to despair?

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
