Lifeless - Poem by loic 'nexus' ekinga

The sun is shy, the grass is cold. The rain is heavy and i think of you. I see men seated on a porch, straw in mouth, and useless hunger in their stomachs besides the shadow of the tree that let hot rays pass through its leaves. Glamorous crows beat their chests in a solemn oath that the land is cursed by love and loneliness.

Men of hard labour will at last go home to their wives and share misery and the scent of a skin burnt by a furious and ripened sun, but love they will find as the master's wife will pamper them gently.
But i am lifeless and love i sought, love i lost.
There is no gain in lust and passion is a myth, when life will approach Man with her amber skin that let the sun dive in heat as she hides behind her back His future, all the fears and tears. But I will stand and take a strong grip on her lips until she tells me the reason for my pain.

The truth is tied and the moon is lost, i will stay alive when i will think of you. Paint me grey, do not paint me pink for all i have is bitter words and corny feelings that i wish to dump into the aisles of hell. But never without your help, never without your love.
Cant you see it? I have become a better man-bound to honesty and love. Because of you. But the sun is shy, the grass is cold, the rain is heavy but i swear, i will think of you.
And love is sought, love is lost.
