In Search of Thee..


How do I
Quench this
Eternal thirst
That floods
My frail mortal being?
I get comforted
But for a wink
From these
Temptations
Desires
Resentment
Angst and anger

No longer do I
Wish for momentary comfort
I wish
To be wrapped
In fulfillment

I walk
Alone
Against
This flood of
Unquenched thirst,
O, my saviour
My succour!

In search of
Thee...

    A poet's sensitive heart is always in search of a fountain to satiate eternal thirst of soul. I feel it's my voice. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Browning

After
by Robert Browning

Take the cloak from his face, and at first
Let the corpse do its worst!

How he lies in his rights of a man!
Death has done all death can.
