Being In Poetic World - Poem by Jayatissa Liyanage

Your passion, not that I don’t like it;
But at times, turn out to be out of wit
Your tickle, caress and cuddle, I do admit
Honestly, I esteem and enjoy true to heart

It is my innate enthusiasm towards you
That kept my spirits up that much more
It‘s the biological tie between I and you
That made us inseparable ‘n indivisible too

You and I are ever being one, never be two
You are a part of me and I am part of you, too
Yet, let me tell you, in undiminished woo
Honey, you befall annoying, seldom though

When you keep nudging me over trivial subjects
I have pondered, in vain to oblige, nonetheless
Many a nights you kept me rolling, being obsessed
Robbing of my much needed good night’s sleep

Days and days I have wasted, sorry to say so
Tried obliging your excitement, in hard peddled go
True, many a times, we accomplished; never say no
For which I am truly grateful, which you know

You are a thirst, burning desire, and rambling greed
A zest, a taste, delight and gusto, never feel freed
More I engage, more I crave it, as is with creed
My poetic hunger, I love you honey, you’re my heed

    When we are filled with poetic passion, many a time we are pushed into a restless state! On certain nights, poetic thoughts come crowding and we are unable to put them in the right order or in flowing rhythm. Then we grow restless and sleep deserts us! Poetry sometimes leaves us as an unsatisfied lover, though there is an inseparable bond between a poet and his art! A great write! (Report) Reply
