Vigilovid

A Poem by Robert Trakofler (Bad Bunny)

__Vigilovid__

 

I, for many an age;

Rack ache pon this torturous scene.

Oh this eternal crave;

hearts completion lies before me.

Pulse perfection of grace;

This Place my loves residency.

Languish the lengthy space;

tween us, though I stand beside thee.

Gaze tear fall from your face;

As I drink witness o’er your sleep.

Can’t help but contemplate;

Twas for me, this luxury weep?

Oh to feel your embrace;

Were these dead hands but live, complete!

To caress crimson waves;

Of your hair in sumptuous sweep!

Draw your bosom to lay;

Warmth to mine, a splendor replete!

But for I in my grave;

In loving Vigil bittersweet;

Doomed this nightly display;

Till some day… I long… again meet.

For chance to touch your grace;

Once more, would gladly die, repeat!

Your title made me think of ancient Greek lit. And the poem does have something of the epic feel to it. The quest seemingly being the desire to reach the world of the living again to be with someone most precious.

What’s interesting about this is the way it mixes (to my sleep-deprived mind) the classical and the macabre to offer something both dark-aching and heroic. Or, the speaker seems to carry traits that make his character malleable. Like a spirit traveling through time. Carrying with him a love that outlives everything.

That’s what I’m reading just now. Love the photo, too. The eyes communicate so much, and that singling out works so well here with the sense you’ve created in the poem.

well done Bunny Boy!!! well done indeed ... the Golden Age of Bunny says i! a wonderful love's tale ... the plight of the dead still yet loving and craving on from the grave ... in true Greek style .. love the word play (you are exceptional at it sir) and the language of old ..i read it easily as you have not forced it not trivialized it ... in my opinion .. smooth as silk... grand as center stage ... steeped in the classics .. really enjoyed the read and story .. nice job!

This is deific, Robert. This vigilovid , every night enthrals your heart and mind ... elusive longing. A desolating desire, only can endure and yearn for time to rectify it! Made me wistful!

thanks Gram:)
Writer tired of same routine. Longing for his love. Distance not an issue for his love. He finds fault his love crying? Splendor replete? love fills his heart. If he dies because of His love he will happily repeat. Emotional.

hey hey Cortez you see a lot in this thanks for the read:)
this is like Shakespeare meets Emily Dickinson...the Apostrophe used, speaking from the perspective of the dead person in luxurious lines, Shakespeare-esque in power and beauty....
if only we could get that one more chance to hold, or to say i love you...when a mate or friend is gone...
if only.

A ghost separated from his love, yearns for her, longs for her touch. I get the impression that this scenario has played out many, many times and continues to torture him. I actually thought of Shakespeare when I read your lines. He liked ghosts. A nightly vigil which is cruel. This reader hopes his spirit moves on. Nice work Bunny.
