The Use of Narcissus

The Use of Narcissus

A Poem by SLOVA

Oh! Deep water, where my lover leans
Suffering because he too
Is lonely
Able only to reach out
Fingertips to themselves
Mouths to mouths
Enduring vanity
Wading in your selfish eyes
Sweetly cheer the swans
from their thrones around your face
Silently hark the crows
Waiting from the canopies
Touch your hands to mine
Shimmering drink
Take with you my life
And in time
Even Death
Will use you
To lure his lover
From the meadow banks
To his home
Where you and I will live
Forever
In Time.

Very good use of words and thoughts.
"Touch your hands to mine
Shimmering drink
Take with you my life
And in time
Even Death"
I liked the above lines. Left the reader with deep thoughts and powerful need. Thank you for sharing the excellent poetry.
