Soothing light

Postby soumya » Thu Aug 04, 2005 7:22 am

Thou make things as silky as thee
I long for thy company
Thou shy smile touches my heart
Difficult it is to stay apart
Thou the rose without a single thorn
More precious than a Unicorn.
Thou make me to dream while talking to thee
In thy ocean of love, I’m the bee.
Even if love is the forbidden apple
I’ll eat it and be forgiven by the man in the chapel
Why to dream about blue sky and glory.
I’ll write my own new story.
Lost in thy love, day and night
Oh my soothing moonlight
Death is not fruitful without thine love
Life is not lush without thine love
Fate in the hands of time
Life is facing an untimely rhyme.

Hey Soumya - sorry, I guess I didn't really connect to this poem of yours. :( It reads nicely, but it feels a bit surreal to me - I'm sure that's not how you intended it to come across - but that's probably just me :) The archaics thou/thee/thy/thine also feel a bit overused, as if you threw them in just to make the poem less modern sounding. Some of the poetic cosntructs also feel like they are contradicting each other, like how the beginning feels like a rather modern love poem (except for the archaics), but then you go all biblical and medieval with the forbidden apple and the man in the chapel (that couplet sort of annoys me!). But for the most part, the poem has a nice and smooth feel to it. Regrettably, I'm not quite sure what to make of the very last line, "Life is facing an untimely rhyme", so the poem sort of leaves me with a question mark hanging over my head. Perhaps you'd like to share some of your thoughts about the various parts of the poem? Do be alarmed by my simpleminded "critique"; most of the time, I simply don't "get it" (happens to me a lot, actually :))

I think you're homophobic.. and everyone knows that homophobes are actually gay :wink: Good luck with finding a boyfriend.
Maybe I'll find on the way down the line, that I'm free- free to be me (8 years on, I think I've achieved this ;))

Thanks for the comments.
i really like true comments like a good 'critique'
The poem is yeah romantic but sad....written some time back and the usage of 'you' (thee) happens to be more but i'm addressing the girls so the usage.
"Life is facing an untimely rhyme" - as if i'm dying and facing my end so it's untimely and things r happening which shouldn't happen.....
i really appreciate your comments and that u took all the time....

Thanks for your elaboration. If I understand correctly, it is then a deeply personal poem. Indeed it reads somewhat differently in this light - I guess I wasn't sure whether some of the images were just philosophical reflections or much more concretely connected to some of your own personal experiences. I guess the poem kind of grows on me, at that :)

I think it was Jane Austen who said, and I paraphrase wildly, the first time someone said they had plunged into a vortex of despair, it was tragedy, but now that everyone does, no-one takes any notice. You have to find ways of expressing yourself as an individual, avoiding the standard 'poesie' images and expressions whilst still relating to the vortex-of-despairers that have gone before. Its tough, and like the Romantic ideal, impossible to entirely achieve, but I think you were there with
Life is facing an untimely rhyme.

Well done for submitting yourself so publically for appraisal, I don't know if i could have done that....

Well done to you for saying what everyone was thinking, but too polite to say, in case of offending anyone.
