** That Glittering Sword ***

All that glitters
is not gold.
Not all those raptures
are love
those symphonies
are not music to ears
Oft ounce of smile
Hides tones of agonies.
And weary eyes asks
Indifferent firmament
Why me?


The calcareous insecurities
suffered when child
that haunts
the old sepulchre
Can only be
hammered down
by diaphanous love.

Deep values
engraved when young
cannot be defaced
They lie in subterranean
Unconscious
like solid rock foundation.

From the cinerary,
a fire so bright
May be exiguous
so effulgent
that when
renewed
shall be a
quixotic sword of love
that was once broken
But now will slay the ghost
Of haunted memories
So to make place for
Immaculate peace and
love divine.

    OH, WHAT A POEM. I EXPRESS MY FELLING THROUGH THIS;

    IT IS EASY TO SAY THE WORD LOVE
    IT'S DIFFICULT TO BECOME A LOVER
    A TRUE LOVER IS NONE BUT AN ANGEL.

    No actuary to evaluate a yet glittering sword
    No honorary awaiting for to hold it on board
    No sanctuary for its broken birdy hope
    No pyramidal obituary to rust its shrugged bloody convoy
    as it heads, it heads the realistic horns of antelope
    No junture for its rupture
    No heck for its break
    Still it glitters failing yet trying utter
    The truth of every word it fought to mutter

    An introspective write. A 10 from me.

    My humble mind was not able to grasp the whole of it... Still I can know what you really want to say... This life is an illusion and sometimes love can be an illusion too... It shines in the beginning and pierce the heart and soul, but gradually as it loses its charm then it feels like that the earlier euphoria was illusionary... But surtely it isn't like that... Life, we spent is always in moments and sometimes one moment of true love can overpower thousands of moments of loneliness, isolation and dejection...

    A briliant effort... Keep writing...

    Not very touching as it should be....the subject is very deep one, but lines are not that much penetrating.
