Upon Fallowed Fields

Love songs cast into the wind
Fall upon fallowed fields
That will never see the rain

Hide in the mudcakes's cracks
Slithering along the edges
Seeking a perfect darkness

Love howls under a full
Forlorn moon of futility
Forever forgiving itself with excuses

Seeking unconditional acceptance
From the corners of suspicious eyes
Love squirms uneasy

In fields of slippery mud
Under bright blue skies
And yellow sunshine

    This is a poem with deep undertones..... Love unreciprocated is being compared to seeds lying in fallowed fields without rain! ! A superb comparison! This deserves 10+ (Report) Reply

    Love means kindness, it is available everywhere in the world, but who have sowed the seeds of suspicion in our hearts? a beautiful poem as DH has written here. (Report) Reply
