The Desire To Feel


My feelings just cannot explain
What does it feel like in the rain
Or how the moon looks in the night
Or what it feels like to be right

Or what it feels like just to stare
Into the blankness of the air
Or how it is to hug a friend
With love and care and sentiment

How does it feel to love for once
To have a thirst for sweet romance
To share an evening in a room
Oh, how I hope this happens soon

So I can feel that warm embrace
To give me courage, and some grace
So I can reach the world again
When will this happen: when?

When will I ever have the feeling that my thoughts always yearn?
When will I ever learn to feel, when will I ever learn?

Will it be days or months or years
By then I'll cry out all my tears
By then I'll gather many fears
By then my yearning disappears
And I will never, ever feel!

Poem of the Day

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

We are as clouds that veil the midnight moon;
How restlessly they speed, and gleam, and quiver,
Streaking the darkness radiantly!--yet soon
