Poetry

Love and many things that overwhelm

They say you are Wind

driving them to farthest biosphere of reason

Storm, stifling their sett with your brass neck

You’ve become kite they present to the skies

Yet refuse to let go

Rain that pleases their thirst,

drowning their soul

 

They say you are Music

You are words they want to hear

You are verses of a poem,

written at dawn, gorged with passion

You are sands of the ocean

Slowly digging under their feet

Until they plunge into your deepness

 

They say you are Waves

Forceful, riveting their thoughts

A wealth of stars

Chasing their darkness in one night

An all-pervading moon, defeating the skies

A yawning river, they’re afraid to cross

 

They say you are Breath

Rushing their lungs

Some air they cannot hold

Heaven at dock

Too perfect they don’t deserve

 

They say you are Lava

Erupting from beneath their skin

They cannot bear your heat

You’re too much fire to be seized in one torch

Too much life to be captured in a single frame

 

They say you are Love

and many things that overwhelm

You are for them

Not for them

And other confusing stances

clogging from all sides

they’d rather be free

of the conventional margins
