The Labyrinth - Poem by Jazlle D. H.

This is to let you know
that there was no moon last night.
My soul was amidst in the dark
straying out the piercing
loneliness, that's cut like a a knife
but I'm lost with my journey.
I strive not to reminisce
but my mind goes so fast.
In my dream I am lost,
in your teasing eyes
I am swallowed by your
enchanting smile...

This is to let you know
that there are no words could ever explain;
the pain that tortured my brain,
the woe that stabbed my heart
and tangled me up with the memories
I'm lost in space with;
the sound of your laughter,
the passion of your sweet kisses,
the warm of your gentle touch,
the three words you uttered
I am intoxicated...I am trapped
in your labyrinth of love...

    Love is very much a labyrinth that doesn't always take us where we want to go. We get lost in the beauty of it even when it hurts...Well done (Report) Reply

    Hi! Read through all of your poems. This was by far my favourite. I realised most of your poems followed an 'error then remedy' structure similar to a sonnet. I found Wicked Love a tad too draggy but this was perfect. (Report) Reply

    A beautiful expression of blossoming love. (Report) Reply

    After carefully weighing all the pros and cons, there seems to be a strong undercurrent of suface tension that is plugged into emotional hurdles tugging at what the right connection and appropriate decision should be. It's a good case for 'basic instinct' expressed with any desire to feel displaced in your affections—if you know what I mean and I think that you do. (Report) Reply
