Peace & Love

Peace & Love

A Poem by David Kwaku

Life turns me into a by-product.
Out of my nothingness,
my proclaim adversity churn the core of my existence.
I can feel the air I breathe,
my tongue yearn the selective sweetness of my desire.
I smell the odour both of good and evil.
In the lake of this wall I can see the reflection, both light and dark.
Suicide leaks from my vessel,
how else can I endure this pain? Friend or foe?
I do not need the elevation of the world who eat through my flesh and bone.
Time does not provide, all I want is time to correct the past and make amend with the future.
Resurrect the love I once lost in a battle to find my identity,
nothing is certain but hope keeps me alive.
The sun falls and the moon rises with the night,
like a dust, fire flies gloom through the emptiness of space.
My heart sinks in and for a moment,
it all came rushing back like the wave of the sea.
I realise, it is you that I love.

You, my friend, amaze me. I don't know how you write so emotionally--specifically with contradictory yet similar emotions. So lovely. Please keep writing!

Notable heart-felt tone throughout this poem. Straying from the notion that love is an entirely blissful venture with no adverse consequence, highlighting the pain that must be borne when delight has failed. Good job.

Hind sight can suck the life.out of us. Take a deep breath and learn to breathe again with ease. Send love their direction when you think of them the release it into the universe. You will find the pain will slowly subside.

Great use of vivid images featuring deep feelings, you've made them just as vivid as the images. Great job :)
