With You, Without You.



For me

Tonight. Now.


The moon trembles

‘Neath our heavy love.

Weigh me down like morrow

That came too soon after the night.


Love me tonight. Now. Sigh with me.

The buoy waits on our darling tree.

Pull down its boughs and lift us up. Right up.

  1. Weigh me down like morrow….I really like that! Is this a particular form of poetry? (I’m so ignorant of the craft of poetry, but this certainly looks carefully crafted.)

    1. This is an Etheree, Linda. A ‘column’ of ten lines with successively increasing syllables. I am no poet either, so this form, in a way, helped me appreciate the poets’ party from afar. Good enough for me. 😉

    1. Dhanyavad. I am aching to take up the assignment you gave me almost a year back — converting the book I published into a Kindle one. But am just not able to. I am telling you this to tell you that I think of you often.. 🙂

      1. Haha!! I am glad to hear that you think of me. 🙂 It’s not that difficult though. At least for a person like you, who can express these complicated thoughts so easily with her words. I hope that document which I sent you helps. It’s only the formatting part that consumes lots of time.

  2. I like the contrast of heaviness and the feeling of being lifted, and the image of a trembling moon. Also, the vertical lines you inserted into the poem, making the entire piece look like a tree. Very nice.
