……………....By Sami Khalil

A romance poem………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….

Those abiding questions abound

Whilst raged and constantly be

Whose hemmed immortals round

To fetch back their infinite glee.

 

Who ravished labours and reigns

Accurst in pride and haggard rites

Beholding selfish, disheveled gains

Palsied as it were in guilty plights.

 

But love needn’t a retort or reproof

Whose repose in comparison none forgo

And hearts yet manacled in blithe aloof

Perused to no starry end in sunset glow.

 

Whose unforeseen silence and succor lay

Edifying in truant swells a puissant way.

You should have been a Pre Raphealite Sami. what am I saying? You are a Pre Raphealite. Rossetti springs to mind writing about Lizzie Siddal. To use your word a very puissant poem. Its a useful word that. I don't for one minute think you would do what Rossetti eventually did to his wife however)

Very well written, Sami!

As always, beautiful vocabulary and expression that takes the reader back to the lost days of the Romantics.

Love itself is the perfect panacea; never painless but always enlightening and always trying to overcome the boundaries that lie in its path.

Another brilliant piece of poesy! Very well done!

Now this is a matter of personal preference, perhaps, but this is the best read I've read by you, to me... maybe its the seamless complexity in simply rhyme, takes me back to the more classical but yet so encompassing poetry!

Beautifully penned Sami.

As ever, your choice of language defines you as the poet you are; a romantic, with a good heart and space enough in it for all of us.

One day perhaps, all of mankind will come to understand that good is better than evil and that love for our fellow man is more important than all the riches so many see as the holy grail.

an inoffensive painkiller. deep beyond deep. very beautifully penned with a sense of the Renaissance and Romantic periods, perhaps Baroque. very classical and elegant. i can image the scene - elegant furnishings, violins playing and feelings of amore and amour. affairs of the heart - always deep. such articulation.

The reader lives through the words. This comes from a realm of thought that is another place and time, the painting is what this poem is, it is a sonnet work of heart.
