    Simply astounding! Every stanza is individually magnificent. The second one I liked most.
    But these two lines are truly the icing on the cake:
    'The chastity of senses shall purge our spirits pure,
    And rise above this Life whose claim is to endure.'

    We cannot aspire to that which is already dead,
    And there is no solace in delusion no verse(s) could catch literary senses. I'd read more of your poems, I must confess.

    To rise above this life is a dream, if one succeeds in it, he is one of those great men who changed the world. For an ordinary man like me the cage of body with grills of instincts it's not possible for our soul to break this cage and fly in the high skies. So I have accepted this cage with all its limitations and ground realities. (Report)Reply

    We should save the present for future memories...this reminds me Lungfellow's Psalm of Life! We have lost this past, for a possible future we should believe in the living present! That is the message of your poem! Delighted reading it again! (Report)Reply

    No soul which is born alone and dies alone ever pertain/to anyone, on this mortal realm of mortals;
    Nothing we are, but an evanescent breath of air/Utopian significance of being insignificant….A precious poem!

    Beautiful bit of writing Mihaela. The line, we should save the present for future memories, implores the reader to slow down and really think through the speaker's words. This poem has balance in its form and philosophy: 4 lines and 4 stanzas...each stanza gives us a new piece to consider the message. The final two lines make everything clear. Very well done. Thanks so much for sharing this! (Report)Reply

    Why consume our breath in yearning, suspiration?
    Desire's flames need oxygen, - and that will suffocate us;
    The chastity of senses shall purge our spirits pure,
    And rise above this Life whose claim is to endure.... loved these lines. It is a beautiful poem on desire having nice penmanship. Thanks for sharing.

    Hi Mihaela, like this poem you've written
    Born alone and die alone
    I'm always alone whoevers around me,
    Even in the womb with a twin brother
    You can be lonely, Jesus Christ was lonely
    You can be lonely with a partner
    Through life your always lonely, everybody is only really thinking about themselves
    And how not to be lonely, there's no solution, stand in a football stadium in a crowd
    Your surrounded with flesh and souls
    They may smile, and be friendly but your still lonely
    Lol, , anyway I'm fed up talking about being lonely
    Your fed up with me and everybody else
    So that's why I'm lonely lol
    Best regards Stu, , , , , your a very good poet

    The extrodinary depth and meaning of your words
    Becomes even more apparent with every read.
    so eloquent and beautifully written
    And of course it couldn't be more true.

    I love the great words and true to that Pirjol
    We should save the present for future memories
    Thus, to remember we had a life we lived.

    'Sense' pulls up us in various direction and as you have observed ' the chastity of senses shall purge our spirits pure.' Loved the poem with its great philosophical insights. (Report)Reply
