The Poet's Side

The Poet's Side

A Poem by da_great

Every a poet's word comes a twist of his life.

From his darkest days
To his twilight smiles
Recounts his wits
Of his seasons that passed by

Like a cupid song
As we listen through our brains
A sonnet which belongs
But to his grievous sins

Like a hell of wisdom
Gritting teeth as we tried to fathom
Yet a lyrical pleasure
From his lover's bod exposure

Like a solemn feeling
When he conveys the sunset
But a disturbing meaning
Of sunrise he tries to forget

Like a rhyme of soliloquies
Recited from his inner demons
A medium of meditation
To conquer his adversaries

Like a lover's touch
Butterflies lingering his stomach
Yet a shadow of devil's watch
Swinging like a hammock

Like a hatred of bottomless
Of his deepest abyss
Yet shows a light though shapeless
Of his hope of forgiveness

In just a simple sentence
Hides a cluster of feelings
Reasons his indifference
Yet his nosiness ablaze

We tried to listen and recognize
Dug the meaning of his wisdom writes
We went deeper yet blocked by a quagmire
So with just our shallow eyes we admire

And so the poet continues his tenure
Of his share to the literature
Inspires, aspires and shows his desires
Still only half we saw of his spare fire

Author's Note

We tried to understand a poet's work of wisdom, love, hatred and so on. Yet do we really understand him?
