Looking for a Reason

Spread the love

img_8764

Spending all night;
Dreaming of you.
The smile on your face;
Similar to morning dew.

With every changing,
Season.
I m looking for a,
Reason.

Unable to concentrate;
Your words fill my mind.
Making it even worse;
While our fingers entwine.

With every changing,
Season.
I m looking for a,
Reason.

Can’t decipher whether love;
Whether infatuation.
Resting upon the desk;
Bright pink carnation.

With every changing,
Season.
I m looking for a,
Reason.

Hence moving on;
Embraced this notion.
Love towards you;
Has depth of an ocean.

With every changing,
Season.
I m looking for a,
Reason.

 

Looking for a ReasonΒ (revised version of 3rd May’15 poem above)

Amid soft whispers exchanged bold stares
I feigned not passion nor feigned I delight
Playing upon sweet lips distilled with dew
I dream of your smile in the hush of night

With every changing season
I’m (still) looking for a reason

Unable to concentrate as your words engulf
I gasp as rose and lily kissed amorous vine
Omitted paragraphs have embroiled sense
Making it even worse as our fingers entwine

With every changing season
I’m (still) looking for a reason

Oh can’t decipher whether love or infatuation
Perhaps I breathe what’s termed as lover’s sigh
Still poised upon bureau a crisp pink carnation
While in rustling conflict bluebirds fill the sky

With every changing season
I’m (still) looking for a reason

Now the heart can think of no greater devotion
Often a greatest triumph is a willing surrender
I figured love’s but sweet old fashioned notion
Cause love towards you has depth of an ocean

With every changing season
I’m (still) looking for a reason

  1. If it is love, rather than infatuation, I think it will become clear enough as time goes on. Meanwhile…live each day, and enjoy.

  4. This is really beautiful. I love the repetition. Enjoy your infatuation- it’ll soon enough develop further or fizzle. Have fun!

  5. Wonderful revision. The details that you have added, the sensory images, add so much to the emotional feel of this poem while the refrain continues a sense of reflection. Thank you for joining.

  6. Well done with the revisions like:

    Unable to concentrate as your words engulf
    I gasp as rose and lily kissed amorous vine

    The format of the refrain also works for me.

    Thanks for joining us Sanaa!!

  7. Wow, what a torrent of wonderful responses. I’m glad to get in line to add my insights & praise. I prefer the revised version–the messages are clearer, reminding us that it can be hard work to build a bridge from lust to love, from honeymoon to mundane routines & respect. For me the refrains really enrich & enlighten the new one.

  8. I think I came too late – everyone else has said what I wanted to say. Romantic and passionate, as always. I like the revised version very much, it has a stronger shape that is enhanced by the insertion of ‘(still)’ in the refrain, which works so well in this poem. Have a wonderful weekend, Sanaa. Much love xx

  9. Though I often prefer simpler poems, I love the lushness of your revised version and think it is a great improvement. I also think you have been visibly developing as a poet since I first started reading your work, and the revised version shows that – I think it is how you would write such a piece now, even without Victoria’s suggestions.

  10. Now the heart can think of no greater devotion
    Often a greatest triumph is a willing surrender
    I figured love’s but sweet old fashioned notion
    Cause love towards you has depth of an ocean

    Beautifully revamped Sanaa. Very much better!

    Hank
