Despair - Poem by Reyvrex Questor Reyes

When hope absconds, with will of one's own heart,
And sleep becomes a stranger to the eyes,
Discouragement precludes any new start
At love that, sometimes, lacking reason, dies;
As misty air dampens each passing day,
The bubbling spring water, can taste like brine,
No more would rainbows show on skies so grey,
As gourmands fail to lure this soul to dine;
But how could love, or lack thereof, undo
What mind perceives, and what the senses feel,
Are books we've read in our dear schools untrue,
And our psyche, just make-ups we can peel?
........What is despair, that so exerts its hold,
........On hearts and minds, to act always as told?

    This poem is amazing. Dark and dreary at the same time as confused and wishful. I admire the poet who can conjure so many emotions in such a short text. (Report) Reply
