Passionless Though I Try

Passionless though I try

To write you love songs

Filled with stars

Shapes not of this world

Brighter than you are and yet

Paler

Less colored than they should be

beside your hackneyed luminescence;

And with these celestials I attest

To draw in your scenery

Capture your voice in the winds

And maybe your laughter in the stream

And I find it all too old

Too used

These little descriptions of you

Remain uninspiring;

Long hours passed and I try

To picture you here, beside me

Willing the tremble in your voice

A similar scenario with your hands

To manifest itself

Almost tangible

And I fail

My mind can only go so far

My memories can only stretch too long

And I remain passionless

Though I try.

    A fine write – I could place myself within the words only too easily!

  8. I love the title, your way with words, and the flow of the poem. Your work definitely has a frustrated tone, due to your failure to write love songs, yet it still sounds romantic. It’s anything but passionless. I definitely like it! 🙂
