Courtsey - Poem by Sathya Narayana

How long shall I impress?
With this expressive silence
I am not of the age to hide
Anything, anymore
Of this biting void
Nor you are a new-born
To treat my dumb dialect
As an unintelligible jargon
My love is still alive in spite of
This agonizing stand off
Like a glowing cinder
Burning in my heart’s kiln
Douse it with unkindly grouse
Or kindle it with a billet-doux
I am simply at your mercy
Waiting keen for your haughty courtesy

    silence is deafening at times, and a lovers' quarrel, cold vibes can try any one's patience. i think everyone can identify with it. you are very good at romantic poems.loved it, got the male point of view.10

    I am not of the age to hide
    Anything, anymore
    Of this biting void
    Nor you are a new-born.....................oh what a voiceful words that impale the frigid frame of stone detasting reeks of gesture unsavoury, wonderful expression ingenious beneath the cinder glow.,10+, thanks for sharing
