Stillness Prolonged

Stillness Prolonged


Doubts play games with my sanity.
Confinement is an attempt to be free
From all the burdens of reality.
But, to be secure, truth I must see
In the eyes of words told to me!

Waiting for an elating knock on my door,
Life becomes very lonesome.
Yet, in an attempt to be optimistic
I wonder whether you too are waiting!
It seems patience has no ends.

We linger and wait under a blazing sun,
Snowing enormous heat flakes.
Will our prolonged stillness yield
Fruit, sweet or sour? Both sensations sting!
Willfully confined, I tune in to song:

“Perhaps you do love,
like all others do;
however, love perceived by me
is an immeasurable dream.”

And I descend into the realms of reality!

K.Q.,

Beautiful piece. I love the last line.
I often find myself "Descending into the realm of reality"!!!!!
LOL :-)

Good work, K.Q. enjoyed, particularly:

"I tune in to song:

“Perhaps you do love,
like all others do;
however, love perceived by me
is an immeasurable dream.”

And I descend into the realms of reality!"


Could reality ever be a step up, I wonder?!

Perhaps it can, Lecky, if it were more ideal than dreams!
Thanks for reading!

Nice work K.Q. I pray that patience has no ends.

Now who was it that stated the only place reality meets with our dream's is in love?

Only if it be true love that does not fall prey to the boundaries of reality!

Dear Adler,
Isn't it funny how people dig up poems for those who read and respond to them and try to respond or perhaps "repay" a compliment. I keep on thinking why a poem doesn't attract from the beginning?!
Perhaps not good enough?! How would you explain it?
