Come Close - Poem by Xelam Kan

Come close,
and look into my eyes
Scan my soul and soothe
my fear and cries.
How could I savour a life`s boon,
As been fooled
like Delilah's groom.So
lured my fancies and verses undone,
like Samson, in the temple of Dagon.

Wrinkled, wane and wailing
Desolate, distress and have been ailing,
Dream of days;
spent with you,
when sorrows hewed and joys grew,
with the rising sun till the evening dew,
wandering far hand in hand and
never adieu.
Ah! Soon my soul is ceased to be
Wish thy mercy
have on me.

    Ah, I look at your versification a little bit more closer. Without a spec, but more specifically. Must write a few humble words of content and wonder, when i am, inshaAllah, back from meeting a friend, who demands my presence to discuss the release of his latest movie in November. wait for details, rgds.

    It is a somber, serene cry of a heart waning for love...sweet symphony
    alliteration... weird, wane and wailing is beautiful

    You need mercy -
    but -
    with or without love? -
    You search be patient -
    and found something -
    wandering from your hands. -
