Darker Sunrise

Spread the love

I have surrendered many a darker sunrise
in my weaknessβ€”
your instructions never fail to arouse
the rising stems,
stretching out wherever you are,
whatever your weather.
I look upon you as a paragon of eros,
the way your lips shape my name
and obey
the pull of the commands of servitudeβ€”
sometimes there are no words left,
only beams of light
and softer sighs;
is this something you can live without?

  1. Togetherness doesn’t have to talked about, once we love and trust the other we accept we might think differently to them but that is OK.

  2. I love the image of β€˜a darker sunrise’ and the contrasting β€˜beams of light and softer sighs’. your poem ending on a question suggests there will be more.

  3. “…sometimes there are no words left, / only beams of light / and softer sighs…”
    Truer words never spoken.

    “is this something you can live without?”
    Oh, PLEEEZE don’t make me answer this question.

    Great write, Sanaa!

  4. I love “sometimes there are no words left, only beams of light
    and softer sighs” is this something you can live without?
    It feels so much like a deep cogitation Only able to being answered by the person in question

    1. Thank you so much, Marja πŸ˜€ you decoded the poem beautifully! I am so glad you enjoyed it πŸ’„β€οΈ
