Silent Embrace

The weight’s been heavy on me

And winter chose to be a stranger

Lustrous days have quietly tiptoed by

Morning dawn shattered my hopes of new light

As I turned into the phantom of the night


When exhaustion almost made way for a frown

Forgotten faces walk by with exquisite smiles

And left me with a warm embrace of respite

As though she received a letter from heaven

To reassure me that I’m not yet forsaken

      Thanks once again pure2core, I see it works out better for me too, to write about something/feelings which is common to most if not all, than to draw around emotions which very few can relate to..!!

    The use of oxymoron makes makes this poem a beautiful work of art (“morning dawn” – “shattered […] light” and “warm embrace [-] of respite”). Nicely done 🙂

      I guess everyone has a point of time when they would go through certain emotion eventually. Hence, reading about those from others is unikely to be unfamiliar..!!

    Something about these lines “Morning dawn shattered my hopes of new light As I turned into the phantom of the night” gives me a bit of a shiver. What a wonderfully written poem 🙂 Thank you for sharing!
