immerse yourself in the sadness of a place
fall from drum beats
float away in the steamy sighs of mourners
in the memories of a thousand misty sunrises
A million grains of sand wiped away
from the corner of your eyes
To a place in the wind
Some stoic island
Threatened by dark clouds and cruise ships
Seek shelter in the basement of your mind
Immerse yourself in the sadness of this place

  1. I take it that this post is related to the last. And I could be all wrong. In any case, it’s beautiful. Sheltering in the mind’s basement, the stoic island threatened by dark clouds and cruise ships. I wish I could memorize poetry.

      • why do you say so? suddenly?

        i am actually a person that can be satisfied easily.

        when i woke up in the morning, opened up the fridge and found so many choices for breakfast. i felt nothing to worry indeed. all the worries came from longing for things that doesn’t belongs to me or things that are luxuries. i don’t need luxuries. and luxuries one day will come. i will just wait. : ) with delicious breakfast and sunshine on the face.

      • Summer

        Just joking in a way but maybe our heart needs to be sad sometimes but not to drown in sadness just to quench its thirst or cool off for a swim.

  4. I felt a noticeable “mental shift” as I read this; that’s what good , evocative poetry does!
