To desire

Tranquil, I stand here and gaze at the night sky
What a thrilling sight it is, to see you stars
pulsating through the night
with your radiance
You take my sight
on a course
of its own
and make
each twinkle,
a gazing trap
Vast in your splendor,
you belittle me with the limitlessness
Petite I stand, but ask you this, just once
O beautiful ones, do you know how it is to desire?

unforgiven said...

Alone, empty, I wish the sky
would mirror today my hollow sigh
They mock me, I feel..
Twinkling, sparkling, playful
they are..
My sorrow has no regard,
the callous, different children
they are..
To see past them,
into the emptyness,
I wish I could..
Stolen my final solace,
as my enemies would..
I give up and close my eyes
to sleep..
Where their flippant laughter no more,
troubles me..

Ah unforgiven!! You remain unforgiven. What lines!!

Now, I guess I have to run and hide for the lines you wrote are much better than mine. I am glad if these lines inspired that of yours (on second thoughts).

unforgiven said...

I definitely don't think they are better. I don't know if they are worse. How does one judge these things anyway :P I thought yours were beautiful..

A poet should be answered in poetry you know? Hence, I had to write my answer this way :P
