Eyes stalking the sigh of trails, leering at me,
scanning my face, my emotions, my mistakes.
It’s murky midnight, but I behold the glaze.
The broken light didn’t blind the spice in the air.

The veil of unknown strangeness is blurring
the last star shining behind the window and
flimsy flare conflicts newborn radiance,
while lonely feather tickled my cheek and ate one tear.

The taste of  breaking dawn demolishing pure words,
the whisper, the wind wrestling in haunted lips,
saying something is ready to come, close to my heart,
but yet so faraway in miles, miles I could hardly count.

I quest to find roses, scent and thorns.
I wait, I wish for the arrows to get to me.
And day after day I ask for my life back,
I ask for that trembling voice to wake me up.

Coming and going promises, fears, decisions,
the rebound uneven,  the prize uncertain.
Another puzzled stranger in me, holding vague feud:
” Love, how can you author so much torture? “

    Such a tortured love … as so many are … and what an illustration. Perfect. Blaga. Delightfully well written.

    I think you, me, and Amy are the only ones online tonight. :-) U.S. is getting ready for our Thanksgiving.

    Painful indeed!! Powerful image..

    Blaga Bubble, you know very well- how to take the reader deep inside the deepest of emotions letting them only as much as breathe to survive and yet be submerged under the essence..

    Floating still.. xxx

    Amazing, as usual. It really describes how I view love – both inspiring and full of despair at times. A great poem!

    Nothing can give us happiness as love and at the same time inflict as much pain. I read it on facebook but waited to comment here. :) The images are awesome.
