WHY

WHY


Why? 
Why, oh my soul, you perpetually 
Are yearning to: 
See the unseen 
Hear the unheard 
Feel the unfelt 
Touch the untouchable
Attain the unattainable 
Believe the unbelievable 
Think the unthinkable 
Conceive the inconceivable 
Know the unknowable 
Appreciate the unappreciable 
Express the inexpressible 
When, no heart of Man, ever able will be 
To understand the purity of your language,
Its honesty and grandeur
Unless 
Totally it is submerged
To  
Poetry’s divine depths?

    Thank you, Karl, for your visit and comment! Writing poetry is somehow a sixth sense, isn't it?

    beautiful, "When, no heart of Man, ever able will be To understand the purity of your language" yes!! some of us burn, from within seeths a consuming flame, our souls so powerful that our bodies could not fully repress it, we live we love and always in pensive thought. hahahahaha inspiring and resonating

    A very deep and thoughtful thing to write The explanation of the inspiration was profoundly moving. Such eloquent comments to a fellow poet. I have used comments from other poets as inspiration as well. This is stunning :)
