When I learned to die

When I learned to die

A Poem by Mircea Popescu

When I learned to die

 

Bleak and weary seems the dawn

Of a new life already gone

I thought I’d drown

In endless lakes

Of a most piercing shade of brown.

 

Because I loved them with a love

Known only to the stars above

But then you vanished

And I woke up

Right then, right there you had me banished.

 

One day had passed, uncertainly

And now I know eternity,

It was that day, I saw the sky

The place,

You taught me, gladly, how to die.

Loving this.
"One day had passed, uncertainly
And now I know eternity" especially this part. Keep on writing :)

A touching portrait of a chance encounter with ecstasy. Potent in poetic poise.
