FEELINGS

FEELINGS Feelings, Masters of my destiny Lords of my life Strength of my dreams Instigators of my actions Burning fire you are Consuming my whole Being: My heart My mind My soul My spirit, As you relentlessly Demand: To be conceived To be formulated To be understood To be expressed! A Herculean task it is, I swear, Such an enterprise, For how one could ever Constrain, you, the unconstrained And mold you into: Phonemes Syllables Words Phrases Sentences And still retain Your explosive Dynamism? No language exists, So vast So deep So accurate So supple As to pay justice, To your intensity To your desire To your beauty To your love! Thus, having no Alternative, I turn to the only language There is, The one that the Cosmos speaks, And The universe alone Comprehends: The language of Harmony, That we humans POETRY name BUT Even then To describe you I AM UNABLE! ©Demetrios Trifiatis 28 January 2013

How does one understand the feelings of another or even Express our own! Feelings are often individual, illussive and unlike passion, needs a language of its own. If we as poets say what "what" feelings are, we mostly give our own. Great poem and a 7.

Thank you dear, Rainbow Promise, for your gracious visit and comment! Of course, when we talk about feelings, each one of us, speaks a separate language that is translated to the readers or to the listeners language with his own denotations, connotations and meaning, pending on the experience the person in question had! I also thank you for your generous grading!
