A Girl Will Kiss Me - Poem by Uriah Hamilton

Deserted by love
In the summertime,
I walk by the river
And speak to seagulls
And feed them my sandwich.

I used to worship the dawn,
But now, I awake alone
In a dreamless home.

I fantasize a departure
To an exotic place
Where I’ll have a new
And lovelier face.

A girl will kiss me
Who doesn’t intend
To make me cry.

    I have read several of your poems and just keep reading.. You have such a raw talent. I know not, how long it is that you have been writing, or even what experience(s) that you draw upon in your life, but you are an amazing poet. Not one so far as I have read from you, is less than perfect. Beautiful Uriah...

    A girl who intends to and does give you the unconditional love you deserve will throw her arms around you and never stop kissing your sweet face off. That's a guarantee. Hauntingly sad and well penned, uriah. t x (Report) Reply

    Something for which every soul wishes: one who will not bring tears. Nothing so sad, in love, as a dreamless home or spirit - or heart. Wonderful write, Uriah. (Report) Reply

    A return to the romanticism at which you so excel, Uriah. Finely written and sweetly expressed!

    Best, Hugh

    I love the way the images flow in this. Melancholy and melody. I especially liked the sandwiches offered to the sky-beings, image of sacrifice - sacred dream of hope. (Report) Reply

    Why is it that your poems break my heart Uriah? I am moved by your sadness...I pray that some lucky woman will realize what a beautiful person you are soon. You deserve happiness. Sincerely, Mary (Report) Reply

    nice poem, I found the first stanza gripped me, I liked the voice of the narrator, speaking to seagulls, and feeding them, it enables the reader to invisage your loneliness. I think the rest of the poem was good, but the first set the bench mark
    a real powerful opener.

    nice work

    Very beautiful and genuine. It is a pity that one cannot give a poem more than one ten.

    Kind regards,
