Yesterday I Was Walking Alone On The Road - Poem by Ali Sabry

Yesterday I was walking alone on the road
I was listening to the car noise
& between the car lights I was seeing your face
Your picture it's shadow in the dark
Your shadow don't need lights to be visible
Cause all of you is lights
You are my light of my way
By your eyes I can see
Without you I'm blind
Why you didn't call me whole these long months
Where are you now
Please let me hear your pure voice for once
I know that the fate is to stay far away from each other
What can we do this is it we must accept it
I'm alone
The walls of my room cried for my situation
The empty pillow beside me in my bed asking about you

    It is difficult for me to analyze a poem that i like because i prefer to experience poems with my heart and not my head. I love this poem and all those of yours that i have read! (Report)Reply

    This is a beautiful love poem. It portrays longing and poignancy. The depiction is reinforced by powerful images evoked through the use of aesthetic elements such as metaphor in line 7:
    You are my light of my way
    and personification in the last two lines:
    The walls of my room cried for my situation
    The empty pillow beside me in my bed asking about you
    The beauty of the poem lies in the imagistic way in which the protagonist laments the absence of his lover.

    A true love poem full of melancholic laments. Thank you for sharing, the lines are meant deep, but layered a tiny bit undeep. But this is lovely poem about love. Make the long lines a tad shorter and you can feel the power coming out. Thank you for sharing, dear poet. (Report)Reply

    Simple, yet powerful expression of love and longing! The last two images of the wall and the pillow are strikingly expressive, and genuinely sincere. Thanks (Report)Reply
