First love


I became different, different from me
I felt a feeling that made me-,
So weak to move a finger,
Still that I couldn’t say a word,
Shy to smile in my room mirror.
While happier than any man alive
Flying and standing on the ground
Within those beautiful shining stars
I could easily touch the highest heavens
Like kings and queens all bowed to me
I felt rains of love fall on my face
And the airs filled with this great scent
A scent that spelt out the spiritual fruits
It was too delicious, too good to be true
But yes, it was, and here with me
Paradise, a world that only you had made
This that only appeared at your sight
Through your eyes, I saw it all come to life
In your voice love symphonies played
Eventually that day you looked away
So it vanished and never has it come back
For you too have never looked back at me

    Paradise, a world that only you had made
    This that only appeared at your sight
    Through your eyes, I saw it all come to life....
    Eventually that day you looked away
    So it vanished and never has it come back
    For you too have never looked back at me

Poem of the Day

poet Wilfred Owen

All sounds have been as music to my listening:
Pacific lamentations of slow bells,
The crunch of boots on blue snow rosy-glistening,
Shuffle of autumn leaves; and all farewells:
