I feel her as I feel

A misty breeze

Fresh, inspiring

From her locks, the red rose smiles

Like her overwhelmed lips

In the infinite web of her thought

An adventurer, I was trapped

Once busy life, now empty

Once empty heart, now full

Longs for a smile

Longs for love

No longer

– A poem reopened nearly 25 years after. Written in infatuation.

  1. Oh my… what a beautiful poem…

    this line: “From her locks, the red rose smiles” — wow. πŸ™πŸ™Œ

    and now I feel funny that I just put a red rose emoji in my comment reply to you on my own site haha… in hopes of not freaking you out, I assure you it is coincidence… (seriously though :))

    Such lovely lines in the poem… but if I may give honest feedback, the image with it, of a very, very young girl, seems a bit strange perhaps…. but maybe you were her age, when you wrote the poem, if it was 25 years ago?

    Anyway, beautiful words, Sang. Bravo

    1. Thanks very much Lia…

      It was written about 25 years ago..

      I love honest feedbacks..

      Did you notice that the rose’s smile is likened to her overwhelmed lips.

      There is a hidden longing inside the poem.. that of wanting to be appreciated.. at that age.. which is now fulfilled “Oh my… what a beautiful poem…


      1. I have a feeling I misunderstood it perhaps… I imagined the rose in your muse’s hair. And I imagined a lady your age… which makes the image seem incongruous in more ways than one. I was tired and it was a long day already by that time. I guess we all interpret things in different ways depending on the lens of the hour…
