Morning by the Window

Spread the love

I woke in time
          to grasp the stars as
they ebb and fade
             with the rising sun,
peer outside as thoughts of you
          hover like dew drops upon
                     the window.

What strange
            realization is this
that numbs the mind of all
                its senses
and yet the heart burns as fire
                        causing doubt
    to strip in a
                   sea of silence.

Love, I fear I’m reasonably lost
           unaware of the emotion
that lifts your eyes.
  My soul approves it better fate
           to trade in eternity
                       of oblivious smiles,
for youth’s hardly
                   a paragraph and
death much more
                           than an illusion.

    Love can certainly numb realities of life when even death seems far away. Yes, that explains youthful recklessness!

    Interesting pattern to your lines Sanaa as though proposition with reposts and the notion of youth as hardly a paragraph is so clever – from this end of life youth feels like a sentence – a death sentence perhaps?!

    I love these lines, the overload of emotions… I can almost see her look at him, all her confusion in her eyes, searching for answers…

    Just awesome. The whole poem.
