*****In the Same Space (Concrete Poetry) ^^^^^^^^


(These two poems are conceived for making one poem, belonging to concrete poetry.
The shape is ''two-in-one''.It's my version.)

Nothing ever happens.......................in the city.
A man is beaten and robbed..............on the street,
But passers go further........................nothing had happened,
And marathon runners are silent........beside the parking cars,
So hard on themselves, .....................in a race against time.
Close-circuit cameras.........................in subway stations
Show the same video on........................ the screens.
The defensive walls used to enclose settlements......................are painted in the same colors.
The air smells......................................of fear, anxiety, and simplicity.
The willow trees grow.......................until they are looking so green.
Nothing happens for a long time........until it is all too late..
Nothing ever happens.........................if we don't make it happen.
But it happened that
We fell in love each other....................in the same space,
And our love is growing.......................every day.
Our unconditional love
Makes us a whole.............................. for true happiness,
In a profound
Sense of fulfillment...............................and a reason to live.

    very interesting and it is good to feel a sense of fulfillment in love....(but as many feel unconditional love is only a myth, but need not be for many others) (Report) Reply

    Excellent concept and experimentation…both stand a unit one and each stands as unit one…is equal to without loosing identity
    Welcome your bold experiment

    Yes, you have already erased the space within when you utter the last line so violently.
    'the reason to live'. Its very violent to give love so higher throne. Idea of replicating time and existence and our personal passion, has been propounded sharply.

    But ask you, if you vanish the gaps within the broken lines whats the difference in meaning expression! ! May be a typographical visionary attracts the reader but its no doubt a gimmick. I expect your interaction.

    After all, the cruelty of life has been demonstrated wisely with a sensitive manism, beside this, our thirst for peaceful living condemning such daily hazards finds a shelter cryingly-- it has been also established skillfully. So you the poet again has gifted your readers a good poem.
    LIVE WITH YOUR NEW REASONS OF LIVING HAPPILY AND WRITE FOR US MORE...........
