Reginald Enakadm Sonnet no- 01

Vine I remain and you in me becomes a branch
Love me not when you love rather love me when not loving me
Let it not be who we try to be but what you and I are born to be
Loving you does not change my convictions yet both are strengthened
Yes love me not when l excel but I wish to see your love more when I am not well
When I dance in me are thee and both are me and you
The dance is with me now and ceaselessly again
These moments be taken not, to be lived they are commanded and due
What is an inadequate man's destiny?
I may say I am not to be yet you know who I am
You are what I am supposed to be with to complete
So the greatest of God's has given me the wisdom to light this flame
Love is not love when love is true love, love is when the truth in love is the truth in mind
Let then our mind live love that is not of wealth in foolishness and love truly through all times.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Louis Stevenson

AT last she comes, O never more
In this dear patience of my pain
To leave me lonely as before,
Or leave my soul alone again.... Read complete »
