Capriccio

Spread the love

Oh, often I have dreamt beneath faint
glimmer of the night, how two people
differ and still their hearts unite —
It’s said that strength lies in differences
once we seek to conquer o’ great divide.
That, better to swallow up pride than
to risk losing someone who makes us
feel alive.

You’re storm unleashed upon my soul,
and yet mind refers to flames that glow.
You’re ocean cerulean that lulls to sleep,
fear I’ve fallen too little and yet so deep.
So, often I have dreamt beneath faint
glimmer of the night, how two people
differ and still their hearts unite —

    Being in love can be quite difficult when our personalities are different but enticing to each other. This of course is part of the excitement of coming to terms with this enigma and finally apreciating each other to the fullest. One of your best Sanaa.

    This is a beautiful and romantic poem. The old cliche “opposites attract” comes to my mind too. But it’s more than that isn’t it, it’s “and still their hearts unite”

    Being alike can be boring, being different can add something special and interesting to a relationship whre you learn from each other. You have it spot on Sanaa.
