YET

YET

A Poem by Pestonjee
"

Free Verse

"
I may weigh a ton
yet afloat, as a feather around you
i drift, till I settle in your heart

i dream of things unreal
yet never letting go of our reality
a beauty, no dreams can inspire

I soar and dazzle many eyes
a colourful kite in the skies
yet I fly with my strings in your hands

Yes, life is bursting with colours
yet I love our grays, our rainy days
blending us in perfect monochrome

I love the light in you
yet I long for the darkness too
so you can glow in my thoughts always

i know we can dwell in the stars
yet find our bliss right here on earth
our heaven surrounds us where we fall

What to say about this one, Monsieur P? It just goes to show that when you are not calling out all the fakery and BS on this site, you can sure write an eloquent poem! Your 'Yet' is a wonderful piece of romantic writing, lovingly describing the union of two souls in both heart and mind. All the weight of the world and even heaven itself is not enough to keep these two from celebrating the love they share. It is the kind of relationship that we all aspire to be a part of. The simplicity of your words is in direct contrast to the complexity of the emotions described and that takes this poem on a journey to a higher plane of poesy. Its an awesome declaration of love and so well conveyed on the page. Fabulous and much enjoyed! And not a collab in sight! :)))

This is beautifully done, love is a connection and an art I always say...the growth together balances out each other in some ways, lovely piece that conveys a beautiful message :)

I love when say it's an art. Indeed, it is! Thank you very much. Appreciated :)
There are many lovely sentiments in this poem that appeal to feminine sensibilities. The idea of loving the less vibrant hues or experiences as much as the ones that invoke more exciting responses is particularly heart-warming for a lover to grasp. But, my favorite part of your poem is stanza three where the speaker describes himself as a kite in the hands of the lover. There is both movement and tethering. Balance. And that can lead to some beautiful places.

True love cannot be all beauty and soaring, though, if love is to last it must experience, endure and usurp the less-favorable as well. Your poem does a great job of demonstrating how that might look in a lover’s mind and experience.

A willingness to let go and be grounded simultaneously that can be fruitful when the mind and heart are open. I thought this was lovely work.

Thank you for kind appreciation sir.
This is a beautiful love poem. So many wonderful poetic lines. Yes, when we are in love we can reach the heights, we see the colours and rainfall is beautiful rather than being an inconvenience. I had such a warm feeling reading these words. My day has started well. Thank you.

A wonderful poem shared my friend.
"I love the light in you
yet I long for the darkness too
so you can glow in my thoughts always"
I understand the above lines. All of us dances on light and the darkness. Thank you for sharing the outstanding poetry.

Gloriously romantic words in this one. When you can embrace the good times and the difficult times, you know it is going to last. Wonderful work. Lydi**
