If Only There Were Words Enough

If Only There Were Words Enough short poem

Photo by j / f / photos

If only words were capable enough!
To articulate how I felt,
The delicate heaviness that dwelt
In the crevice of my heart,
And the hollowness I dealt
When we had to part,
The fear of a lonesome night,
The sense of a ceaseless fight,
The essence of being lost
In a world so vast.
If only words were powerful enough!
To cast away strife
Out of my past,
my indifferent life,
To give me a different identity
To express the deferent futility
Of a routine becoming an eternity.
If only words were subtle enough
To express the intensity of my love,
To digress the density of my pain,
Add a meaning, to all that was vain.
If only there were words enough!

A black hole detonates itself to stigmatize the substance. Now a silk road leads to sight and touch. A scarecrow starts screaming. Sky was falling on fire. The space becomes deviant. Chopped hands were drawing the tattoos of winged feet.
