A World Away

I found
your eyes
so randomly,
your face did
not exist

No waist
to place my
arms around,
no lips for me
to kiss

No hair
to lose my
fingers in,
nor ear to
whisper sweet

No one
to hide within
my heart, to
fall in love 
so deep

Your image
I saw by
happenstance,
a beautiful
vision to see

You held
me there with
just a look, as
you stared back
at me

Your eyes,
those lips, that
lovely face,
my feelings are
all for not

For you
are more
than a world
away, my beauty
from Herat

Herat (Herr-Rot) is both an Afghan city and province. Herat City is the capital 
of Herat Province located in the western portion of Afghanistan.

Written in Afghanistan -May 2013

    Dude, this is great. It not only flows beautifully but each word finds its purpose. It's a solid piece and polished well on all angles. Great job

    Nice poem...All wrapped up in your own imagination. Nice use of symbols and imagery. Nice use of personification too.
