A Poem by jacob erin-cilberto


a room with a view


synergy lengthens the synapse
spaces of the heart allow for rental

the vacancy subdued
feelings co-exist

love finds its lodging
within both of us

the tab paid to infinity
room service delivering

the menu written with eternal dreams
of peace.

"...the tab paid to infinity,,," properly assesses the ultimate cost. Am quite unfamiliar, however, with "eternal dreams of peace."
This poem is, no doubt, complex and laced with meaningful metaphors.
My "room," unfortunately, appears to have a much drearier view.

Love comes, finds its lodging, and life moves forward once again. Peace for the heart to be found in dreams. Good write, j.

When a person is alone, he or she often rents out a spot of the heart to the wrong tenant. Dreams can write the menu, but will the cook prepare the meal? That is the question. Lydi**

You are very welcome. I enjoyed it.

I really love the first two lines where it says, "synergy lengthens the synapse/spaces of the heart allow for rental." It makes me think of human connection and how people need/rely on one another.

I love the emphasis on "love" as the filler of this desire for synergies. It makes me think of agape love because that is often associated with the idea of "eternal dreams of peace."

Thanks for posting! Have a great day!
