I Am I - Poem by Kranthi Pothineni

I'm a lost moon in day
Like lost night in night
Lost as a light in light
I'm lost in your longing
But I am not lost in you

I am longing for a long
Longing for your smile
And for your rhymes
I'm longing for your eyes
But I am not lost in you

My wings of time is you
Smile in a night is you
Your a light in my light
I lost heart in your love
But I am not lost in you

Your ruling all my senses
Its blind and deaf for you
Makes me lost in longing
Yet I am I, who long to be
Me, myself and I but not you

    nice visual metaphor very well combined with a double simile:
    I'm a lost moon in day
    Like lost night in night
    Lost as a light in light
    wonderful symbolistic poem

    We all feel we may lose our true self in our efforts to impress the ones we love.But love is never about turning into someone else. Our true self emerges stronger and brighter than before. Well expressed (Report) Reply
