Ashes Poems: 93 / 500

My First Love

I have cut off at least a thousand heads of Hydra
But I am still fighting with it
I wish I were Hercules

Throughout my youth
I was mesmerized by the nymphs
Now I have realized it was just
Waste of my most precious time

My first love was burnt to ashes
Like the phoenix
Now the ashes are turning into
My love once again
But the dragons are destroying
My sweet dreamland
By blowing with their mouths
Wild firestorms

Now my brain is haunted by the ghosts
They try to scare me to death
Now I am like Adonis
Venus has hurt me by her weapons
Wherever my blood drops fall
Blooms anemones of love poetry

this one is awesome Asif, really great, I feel I could learn a lot from your pen that's for sure, this is an epic of a poem and you do the ancient hero's and gods justice with a piece that should last as the names quoted in this master piece Great! ! ! jon

Love poets were born when love failed and those succeeded in love wrote the same fairy tale and self same single line-they lived happily ever after. When first love fails it, as you tolled it rises like a phoenix or you may call it flowers from ashes with tears on their petals. To read such poems you need not fail in love but should have a heart to understand the tears. Nice poem Asif. My best wishes KAVIN CHARALAN Clarification: What is this list People who read Asif Andalib also read? Some poets' pages are having this list others are not.. If you know tell me.--Kavin
