Love In The Air - Poem by John Jonny

Perplexing as a guest that I didn’t expect,
Surprising as an earth quake that I couldn’t detect,
Amazing, scintillating, gratifying full of tact,
Her love ignited in me with no guaranteed pact.

True feelings I held in me
And silently I wrapped with glee.

That crazy love, a law of no logic
Accosting one’s thoughts like magic.

Alas, hastily in a single sore day,
My heart became astray
My love wagon her man drives away,
What a price both dragged me to pay!

A soul cataclysm that convulsed my entity.
Me knitting love out of superstitious mentality,
Drove my dreams to a desert finality…
My broken heart says with pity.

Myself, that fake hope I clung to
Eyeball blind, ear deaf and barren is my heart meadow!
I’m barely kept with nothing to do!

Her love storm left a mess,
Turmoil, chaos at every level of sense,
Between willingness and muteness
It did, myself, obsess!
Was it good that I didn’t to her confess?

Would my fate tighten my cracked pavilion?
Would it celebrate my oblivion?
Many more questions bewildered my petition!

My shadow suddenly whispered! I’m tired standing!
Go! ! I said, I’m not moving…
I won’t give up crying
Me and my rhymes binding.
