Open Book - Poem by Daisy Pereira

I am not an open book
every page not simple
every para not transparent
every word conveys
something to somebody
may not be to everybody

All books are like that
they stand and wait just for the right moment
for the arrival of someone
who may go through
a forlorn heart
holding the hands of the beloved
shall recite these words
once again
may be after a thousand years.

Topic(s) of this poem: sad love


Poet's Notes about The Poem

the words of a poet may convey something to somebody, may not be cognizable to everybody. at his times.. yet after so many years some reader sure may re-discover him.
