I could

I could

I could fall in love with you
at this very moment, shared with
consciousness and breathing.

My beaten senses could gladly
entrust the stories you murmur
about werewolves and princesses.

I could instantly leave behind
the pieces of life survived and take
the road to nowhere, as long as you drive.

I could, but would I? What a shame we live
in a world of possibilities and I have no time
for feelings, no bravery left either.

    Wow.. you made it so dreamy and romantic.. and then, that twist at the end…poof!!! End of dream!

    Liked this one, Blaga… we do tend to be too objective and harsh to ourselves at times…
    Nicely expressed here!

    I can really relate to this poem on so many levels. I know what it’s like to want to love, to dream about it, and then to sabbotage my own romantic fantasies. I love the line: What a shame we live in a world of possibilities and I have no time for feelings, no bravery left either.

    Great job!

    “I could, but would I?” These words are so strong, they’re left echoing in my head…I can completely understand what you’re saying in this one…love is a strange thing, and sometimes we strangle it with our own hands. It takes real bravery to stick through it. I hope we all find it someday. Love the last verse the most. Keep up the wonderful poetry!

    I love the final stanza and you always seem to find a picture that perfectly matches your words.

  8. Seabell Says:

    What you write about is something we all feel or felt at some point. The way you write about is very unique. And that’s why we all relate with your words. From individual to universal… Love it!

    I could absolutely breathe, smell, and feel this poem. It is how I feel. Did you write it just for me? Thank you!

    sad finish line.

    A thought provoking poem. Makes you pause and think about the decisions one is making. A poem so many of us can relate. When you gathering the pieces of your life together it can be a good thing to be with yourself to heal and become stronger and make decisions with a clear head.
    I like the way your poem ends…the tiredness comes across very effectively when you say “no bravery left either”.
