Was this love or hell?

Was this love or hell?

Stagnant words, false pleasures,

Was this love or hell?

Sumptuous embrace,

Conceived feelings.


Hanging onto realities edge,

Afflicted torrents of doubt.

What short fate,

Rules this?


Revolving moods, flawed imperfect.

Unchallenged and dormant,

We shall let it lie.


What heaven to recollect,

Memories of soft thought.

Brims of love,

That could not try.

    Estee, your expression of love covers so many dimensions. From grief, joy to anticipation. Your words always land softly on me and with the greatest of pleasure.

    Estee, I’ve been a big fan ever since that memorable day when I got lost looking for GPS information on the internet and ended up here. Haven’t looked back LOL. Never thought a macho guy like me could enjoy poetry so much. Keep them coming.
