A Moment of Solace

A Moment of Solace

A Poem by Inaya Khan

A moment of solace
A pinch of desire
An ounce of love
And my heart on fire.
That's all I asked from life
That was all I sought from the endless strife.
I swore to smile
I knew I'd break.
For all the strength,
Would eventually decline.
A streak of hope
A million dreams
My incoherent screams.
Muffled thoughts
Battles fought
And peace for all.
Cast away like dust
Foraged again with lust
Endless rage
And the mighty courage,
I nurture within
Shallow minds and the slow pace
Yet, all I wish for is,
A moment of solace.

Thank you! :)
I'm reading this over and over trying to decipher the meaning.. I suppose that's what makes this poem so beautiful, an element of sadness and mystery, and a hint of weariness..but to what?
Great way you have ended this poem;
"Yet, all I wish for is,
A moment of solace. "

:) thanks for sharing, I enjoyed this!

Writing, for me is when I'm in the state of extremes of any emotion- depression, happiness, anger, joy. It just strikes. Next thing I want is a pen and paper and I'm good to go. Life gives me a lot.. more..
