Unnamed Love


The Gloom,
I wandered through
screamed at me
like a wolf adoring
the new moon,
it howled at me,
to stop my search!

Overhead,
starry skies
kept staring at me,
like a virgin flirting
with her first crush,
they winked at me,
to stop my search!

The chilly breeze,
kept touching my hair
as a polite hooker,
it invited me to dance
with the night,
to stop my search!

The twinkling fireflies
caught up to me
as a cop stopping a car,
they signalled me,
to stop my search!

But...

for my own sake
and for my sanity
for the little that I call my life
for the continuation of my dreams
and for my unnamed love

I didn't...
I wouldn't...
I couldn't...
STOP!

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Raleigh

EVEN such is Time, that takes in trust
Our youth, our joys, our all we have,
And pays us but with earth and dust;
   Who in the dark and silent grave,
