    Poem Commentary

    Another older poem that I always kind of liked.

    Seize the Day

    I can't bring myself
    to face the warming sunset
    that awaits
    the dawn of a new day
    and I can't get you off my mind
    as long as your heart and mine
    are still wildly beating
    for one another
    there's something inside me
    that feels for a part of you
    that empties full corridors
    of pain
    filling up inside me
    but I can't find a reason
    to seize the day
    because today's sunrise
    is nothing
    compared to the last one
    I saw with you.

    Ah, the angst of a jaded heart. Wonderfully written. We've all been there and can all relate, especially when the writing's this good. Great job!



    Thank you so much. I look forward to reading your work as well. :)

    Awwwww :') you're fabulous! I have a boyfriend and this reminds me of him. He lives far off and so the sunset thing really relates.



    I'm glad that this makes you think of your boyfriend. :) I love when I write something and someone can relate to it so nicely. He he. Thanks for reading. :)

    Poetry is not a turning loose of emotion, but an escape from emotion.
