3 February, 2022, night


Crowded days

Lonely nights

I wish you were by my side


Stroke of night

Hold me tight

Pull me in your arms tonight


Speed of light

Pace of flight

Blur the lines of time and tide


Drunken plight

Lost my might

Pity I let you off my sight.


~ End ~

About the Creator


Welcome to the fragments of my mind. Thoughts. Ideas. All once a chaotic yet artistic mess, before I expanded them into entire, complete poems.

    Poignant and love the rhyme. It's very beautiful. It's been a while since I have read a short elegy.

    I love the rhyming in this, it adds something special to an already beautiful piece. Absolutely beautiful and powerful and yearning. Well done.

    Such a simple but beautiful expression of regret. The rhyming somehow addded to the poignancy ot it 🤍
