Tareq Jalabi

A Dry Plant

my soul is distressed
my heart is ill
love must be confessed
and i love her still
no way to conquer that disease
her love i cannot kill
coz loving her my heart won't cease
it is against his will
****
no matter how much i try
her love to me is the sky
and i am that guy
which without it will die
she didn't feel sigh
for letting me cry
till I - the plant
became dry

    The title of this poem really attracted to me to it, and went with the poem perfectly. I would not even think to change that! Great job!

    my gosh, this almost brought me tears, because sometimes your love for somebody you truly care about can never go away, and it lingers on you for soo loongg, until it eventually drains everything thats in you, slowly depriving you from the life you once had. nice piece. it really struck something in me. =) absolutely a 10+
