Nostalgia

The nostalgia of looking in
stills every other wish
save the expansion of self essence
that powers the beating heart
to breathe life
in your shape of dust.The rest,
eyes like those of a pet
glued on its stall,
too squints ridden to see the road's end,
padlocked, wallow in the paddock
until it gets dark
for these short few days.

    What a deeply moving piece of poetry. So many underlying meanings. Well worded and meaningful. Thats life, slipping through our fingers. How the heart aches to think of the moments gone.

    Wallowing in the padlock with just one question. Does the heart beat so we can breathe or vice versa? Good one,

    My age is slipping from my hands nostalgia is inflating every day, at any moment I may be burst, I am a balloon of clay, but I can't turn out this uninvited guest, among all my friends nostalgia is the best, unlike me with the ageing it's increasing its charms, welcome nostalgia, come into my arms.

    I too rate nostalgia highly, remembering the vast hinterland of the past. It is a beautiful thing to say 'please' and 'thank you' to anyone who does us a favour. Very well written.

    hi, i liked your words....
    " The nostalgia of looking in
    stills every other wish
    save the expansion of self essence
    that powers the beating heart
    to breathe life
    in your shape of dust."
    it has a lot of insight, but sorry, i didn't understand the rest of the poem, it was too esoteric for me.
    cheerio carola
