Empty Space - Poem by Sanjukta Nag

My body relishes the pride of an astronaut
When it roams like a somnambulist
On infinite space of your midnight heart,
By touching the stars of your emotions
With bare hands and lips.
While I bathe in the softness of moonlight
That your love radiates,
Passionate comets invite me to
Explore more of your invincible galaxies.
But my eyes only give birth to empty dreams,
When your heavy words make my pillow
Soaked with silent tears.
I wonder why I didn't realize before
This universe also possesses a black hole,
To swallow the strength of weak spirits like mine.

Topic(s) of this poem: heartache, love

    Soaked with silent tears! But, there is always hope in life. With the pace of the ace of life. Nice piece. (Report) Reply

    Love sometimes gives us that empty feeling. Harsh words are like poisoned arrows that wound one deeply. Thanks for sharing (Report) Reply

    It is a pity that a lover who holds an entire universe in his arms ends up in such a wretched state: 'Explore more of your invincible galaxies /...When your heavy words make my pillow / Soaked with silent tears.' Incredible and lovely. Thanks. (Report) Reply
