THE OTHER SIDE OF POETRY

I

DARKNESS

I sit on the alcove

Gazing at the window panes

All I see is darkness.

I cry, I laugh, but all I see is blood and emptiness.

I dance, yet my legs are immovable,

The pains of yesterday still fresh.

My voice crooked, I try to sing a new song

But all I hear emanating from my voice

Is the song of misery?

I have tried to find the other side of life

I have traversed the entire length and breadth of this earth

Seeking for a world that lies beyond poetry,

Poetry and its sometimes meaningless verses

Yet my words on paper cannot profess the pent up

Feelings in my heart

Ready for a meaningless explosion.

II

LIGHT

The lights turn from red to green

And from the blues she walks up to me

In a flowing white gown

She sweeps my caked face with her warm soothing hands

Gives me warm smooth kiss and a long embrace

My joy knows no bounds

Now I know the other side of poetry and that is LOVE.
