For the Unachievable Fragment


There is a verse
missing from my unfinished song.
A melody is lacking
to complete the music.

There is a piece
that will never be permanently
lodged into my frame.

Circumstances, differences
and inconsideration distorts
the picture, the sound, and the words.
My song and puzzle
will never attain perfect completion.

I will always be a border,
devoid of the one inner piece
that brings forth euphoria and beauty.

My soul shall tuck itself in the closet
where memories of my inspiration
dwell in a hallowed space.
My soul is surely to find
a little bliss there.

Poem of the Day

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

O World! O Life! O Time!
On whose last steps I climb,
Trembling at that where I had stood before;
When will return the glory of your prime?
No more -Oh, never more!
