Open every treasure chest

Inspect every attic

Break beyond the atmosphere

Gaze at every star

Exam the Milky way

Scrutinize every galaxy

The Sun mourns its absence

The moon wails its truancy

Where is love?

 

Dive into the deepest sea

Hunt the darkest jungle

Discover the treacherous caves

Climb the highest mountains

Descend the lowest mountains

Mine the stubborn ground

Until it is successfully found

Pursue every hurricane

Rummage the inside of every volcano

Interrogate every earthquake

Question the tsunami

Investigate every avalanche

Study the drought

Where can love be found?

 

Can such a question be posed at humanity?

Will mankind be able to answer?

Do they keep it locked up in casket?

Or carry it around in a basket?

No one questions its absence?

Has hearts been emptied out?

To create space for selfishness?

It cannot be sold, can it?

If it could, would they ban it?

Did they adopt a replacement?

Or has a clone been made?

Are we happy with the prop?

It’s placed here and there

To make life easy to bear

 

I hope you find true love, I really do.

But first, take in this clue

You must disown you

To make something new

 

 

 

 

Between Stanzas

I have recently published my poetry book on Amazon Kindle. It is an anthology of 100 poems of various genres. Here’s one of my favourites, it’s called Beauteous.

Beauteous

Into the room, you gracefully pace
I gaze at your beauteous face
And my heart begins to race
Thoughts in my mind giving chase

I know there’s more behind those eyes
Every second precious, as time flies
You pursue a different sunrise
Where every one of my dreams dies

It feels like you were the reason I was born
But here comes your new dawn
This city will surely mourn
The show ends with curtains drawn

I scan the horizons forlorn
But you are forever gone

 

I was writing poetry for quite a while and I decided to compile them into a book. If you would like to purchase my book Between Stanzas, Click Here.
