Farewell to all the living things
yes, to all those which respond
Sunset has com
Darkness, pure dark night has overcome
all our miseries and sadness
with the lovely world of sleeps
as the sun sets
my melancholy steps up
i feel i am alone
the sandy shores becomes alien
as if they have swiftly changed
transformed into some giant dragons
rearing to gulp me and mine
all golden dreams gone with the sunset
dying songs, dying music, dying lights
sunset is so tragic, yet people ache to see
the setting sun in reddish aura
the passing ships and plying boats
many a fast day ends into nothing
but sunset, only sunsets could close the days
every life, sweet and sour, beautiful and ugly
angels and terrorists all will die oneday
at the altar of destiny
all suffer truths equally
when the egoes strut and stand
and voices echo with kindly bands
I feel the silence that quietly says
no, no, this will not do
time will tell you what i mean
tide will kill the men of greed
all the loved ones taken one by one
all great men died asleep
some burnt in stacks, some in gas chambers
but Hitlers never cry and Jews always sob
remembering forever the bereaved brethren
the man who lost is always lost
his grief is forever his only grief
for one who has heart always feel
either for him or his countrymen
Sunsets speak of rising suns
yet dawn is far off, night is cold and killing
every freezing second of night is ticking very slowly
as if it will never end......

Poem of the Day

poet Christopher Marlowe

It lies not in our power to love or hate,
For will in us is overruled by fate.
When two are stripped, long ere the course begin,
We wish that one should love, the other win;
