Perched/……………..BY Sami Khalil

Perched to fly off into the unknown…A romance poem.

The Poem:

 

The wind stops its whips

The rain halts its drips

The candle burns its tips

The ocean idles its ships

Death tightens its grips

Luck plays its many chips

The joker shares his quips

A lady shows off her hips

The traveler longs for trips

A trace is found on blips

My name perches sadly

on your lethargic lips!

How every word is a tighter grasp on my hand and another careful step towards the end...
And then I find myself struck by a wall I couldn't foresee.
Caught off guard once again and I loved it, lol.
You're as creative as can be.

The bird doesn't know a good perch when she finds one. A giggle and a sigh from this one.

I am smiling. I am not sure why you chose to end this on a down beat, but it changes everything as you do...
I must consider what this poem would be saying if the last lines changed.
My name as sweet as honey
When kissed from your soft lips...
I can dream... ha.
We must start a cause and ban all "lethargic lips". :)
Fun read Sami.
