These roads, they have never known peace.

“Quiet and calm”, no poet dares to gift these words to his lover.

Yes…his lover…the fuel to his art… Life.

My feet have sores, I walked barefoot for years…but I won’t dare to caress them…for…my rendezvous with this pilgrimage hasn’t borne any fruit yet.

Every lonely night, I stare at the stars and think. Aren’t we all travelers?… Vagabonds… The delusional vagabonds!!

No place called home has ever been warm enough for cold nights.

No lake could wash away the filth and dirt off our soiled silhouettes.

We, are all misers.

Life is a sorceress, we fall for its magic.

Life is the mistress in this facade of beauty.

A dawn ago… I halted to hear some songs of praise for her highness.

The singer hailed loud and clear,

“Everything “life” is beauty!
Everything “death” is beauty too!!”

My heart smiled and blurted out loud,

“Then why does my soul yearn for peace!?”

  3. I went over this poem a couple of times. Your phrasing says so much beautifully. “…the fuel of his art…Life.” “My feet have sores, I walked barefoot for years…” “Life is a sorceress, we fall for its magic.” Thanks for this.

    • Very true! We can’t expect life and our story to be written a certain way,but we can control our way of reacting to it!😊😊
      Happiness is a choice and we have to choose it every single moment of our life!😊
      Huguette, to be very very honest, I can’t even tell you how much those words mean to me! The past few days have been very rough for me, and the day you posted this comment was particularly very tough! I remember tearing up when I read it at night. You turned my day around πŸ˜ŠπŸ€—πŸ’•
      Thank you so much for being here! Such a pleasure! Have a great day ahead πŸ˜ŠπŸ’•
