Casa

A Poem by Sami Khalil
"

The house of our past memories. The house of upbringing or love...

"
 
 
 

Casa/(House in Italian)………………………………By Sami Khalil

A sad romance poem. Going back to the house of your fading memories…

Note: Sorry for the hard work you have to do for some. Look some up you will appreciate the poem.

House of our birth and memories of upbringing stands as a patriot guarding our memories after we have outgrown it and left it decaying but we love to go back to it. Or it could be the house of marriage and love before the death of one’s love. Or the summer house of visits and vacations.

The Poem:

 

The blanched house stands… abandoned

Dappled home to Assumption silhouettes

Noctuary patriot to scabrous perfervidity

Piteously decaying; amongst lover’s bets.

 

Randomly dehiscing those lost pareidolias

Solemn hauteurs of crapulent, gaping visions

Upon doom, gloom rises from ingravescent pits

Surmounting belfries of their echoed collisions.

 

Where bells strike in their muted redundancy

While scornful opprobrium’s pelt at us away

Anamneses raise high to lofty aquiline summits

Through serrated edges, morning lights sway.

Great houses, which almost yearn for occupancy, so often become huge empty mausoleums.
In many ways, leaving to ruination a much-lived-in house may be likened to the abandonment of a beloved pet.
Brilliant piece, good poet!

I have always said that homes which have been experienced the great love, passion, sadness and anger that surrounds families and lovers hold energy, they breathe it. They are the diaries of secrets and promises, wise in their windows which look out with a pleading, and, upon walking inside their doors, one can feel the memories without them ever being spoken.

We are energy and we drop our love on the floorboards and our whispered secrets crawl inside the walls of where we reside...that's the emotion I picked up from this piece, there is great depth in every word...brilliant, again.
