Poets and Lovers

Poets and Lovers

A Poem by Tania

I can’t sleep tonight 

when the words I ponder of 

have already been spoken and written.


I  can’t sleep tonight 

knowing that there have been 

poets and lovers

who have anonymously created the art 

we so fondly care for today.

Poets and Lovers

who have become 

ashes lying around 

somewhere,

anywhere.

Poets an Lovers

who found love as an excuse to write.

who found life as an excuse to live. 

Forgotten .

Perished .

Time has dragged away their words,

consumed their emotions 

and hidden it.

somewhere , 

anywhere.


I fear the taste of this unnoticed cruelty 

in which my life becomes nothing but 

rooms and streets once  stepped on

by my well deserted soul. 

I experience unease in the idea of oblivion

of my thoughts being darkened 

and my words being forgotten.


It hurts to see the wave of goodbye 

staring at you from a far distance 

lurking for your end.

Oh , 

this is for you 

my friend 

my lover 

my poet,

you are today celebrated

by my memory 

by my  gratitude 

by my  gratefulness  

as I stand still and aware 

that this moment ,

which will be vaguely remembered 

is my own little history 

stamped at the doors of my grave.

Crafted with care and beautiful artistry, this poem is an elegy with a difference, a lament for the passing of lovers and love - by contrast with the usual fancy that love and lovers are eternal. And yet it is true that the words that and written from full hearts and passionate desires have a lasting existence. The paper may turn to ashes, or the digital record, these days, erased but what has been penned in love is surely never lost... like the act of love itself. It burns in its own heat and yet it lives on in elements that remain, in the spirit of the universe to which those words and feeling contributed.

The thoughts spill out into the poem with passion and ache, and 'the tasted of unnoticed cruelty' (such a memorable phrase) becomes the lasting sensation fixed in the words eternally.

I was moved by the sweet sadness, wanting to hold the poet in my arms, to bring comfort and easing of the pain.
