In despair


The darkness overwhelms me
as I stifle in despair
and can’t make out
how I got drowned in love
instead of simply having it,
enjoying it and cultivating it;
but it must inevitably grow
into a stormy ocean
thundering and roaring universally
and drowning everything
in its tempestuous emotions
that will carry everything away
and most of all your self
and all you have
while only one thing will be saved:
love purifies the more it is enjoyed,
and through all trials and upheavals
you will have your soul still floating
flying universally in triumph after all.
