Monsoon Longings

Monsoon Longings short poem

Photo by abogada samoana


The rain patters in monsoon night
Its monotone no lullaby
It’s not the moist air that chokes
It’s not the bug that lurks
In languor I long for you
Darkness states your absence
And the rain mourns it
I seek sleep to be with you
These days of love unrequited
These nights of love imagined
I blank out, at last with you.

Hopeless romantic, grounded realist, eternal optimist, brooding pessimist. All these are me. I am all of them. When I referenced my diaries for poems written decades (1985-99) ago, I was surprised to find that most related to either Love or Death. I was even more surprised to discover that, with a quick change here and there, many of them could be interchanged to reflect either. It was in this way that I discovered in myself the obsession that Sigmund Freud labelled as Eros and Thanatos, a theme that has fascinated thinkers, poets and writers for centuries. Here you will find Eros and Thanatos and a bit of Philos in between.
