The Perfect Equation


I have been
Lost
Between
Eileen
And my canvases.
Which comes
First?
Which comes second?
It is an inch long equation
As beautiful
As the universe
The canvases are hitting
Eileen;
It is a normal jealousy.

At the equation’s left side
Eileen is standing
Tall,
Warm,
And laughing.

At the right side
Is
My solitude,
My canvases
Are empty
Like my life;
White without any scratch,
Like a lost young dreamer
From the south
Crossing the desert
With
No fear or calculated risks
Only his dreams are contagious.

I closed my eyes
And I took a profound breath
To see and foresee the equation
And the two sides
Separately.
As I went deep into this day dreaming
The picture of the perfect equation
Popped out
Like a giant bubble
Surging from the deep ocean
I saw Eileen a part of the canvases
And the canvases are
Welcoming Eileen as
A new
Sibling.

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;
