Another Poem

Unable to Hold More

Today it seems that I know what I want,
But how can I know what I'll want tomorrow?
I cannot trust myself to love you,
Only this very moment I do.
And I know I have before.
And I know I want to more.
Today it seems peace maybe easy to find,
But how can I find it tomorrow?
I cannot trust the world to turn more,
The sun to rise and burn more.
Only this very moment.
This ray of sunlight;
May it last forever,
While I hold you,
If only in my mind.
Because this moment, right now!
Its all I can be sure of.

  1. That poem really speaks to me today. Thank you.


  2. The honesty in this poem comes out in a vulnerable way that is hard to, sometimes, express. Love it.

  3. This seems like the most practical poem I have ever read.

    No. This seems like the only practical poem I have ever read.

  4. Thank you all for your comments. It's been a long couple of days and I never thought I would get the chance to get back to my blog! With temporary homelessness, long flights and settling back in at home I have been unable to get any real blogging done. Who am I kidding, I don't do 'real' blogging. LoL.
    Again, thank you. I think most poets would be offended by their poem being called 'practical' but I'm not most! (I'm not really a poet either. Shhh, don't tell anyone.)But I shall continue to pave the way for practical poetry! LoL.
