Before Sleep.

Poem By Safiyyah Manjra

Those warm showers at night,
Which comfort us before sleep.

The kiss,
Which nurtures us in the deep.

The work load,
Which is soon to be complete.

Those moments where we look out the window,
To see the lamp post doing it's show.

The night becomes well lit,
The rays of light which seem to perfectly fit.

Those times where we are alone.
With everyone asleep in a place we call home.

Before the day ends.
The thoughts we keep to ourselves suspends.

For we know what's really in our heart.
May be the reason why we choose to part.

A heartwarming poem that readies for sleep. Well constructed and executed.
There may not be anything off-beat about the subject of the poem but the way it has been treated and presented makes it a masterpiece. I also agree with what Robert and Howard have said about this poem. Just awesome.
Those times where we are alone. With everyone asleep in a place we call home. For we know what's really in our heart. May be the reason why we choose to part..love, desire, care, concern, to be loved. time, stress all these points come in, in your poem dear poetess. thank u for this poem. tony
Making meaningful the mundane is what great poetry is about. That you written on a subject so common in such a creative and captivating manner is commendable!

Fail With Repeat.

The pain of the heart.
After trying something which once kept you together.
Is now tearing you apart.

Feed Together

I always have this urge to feed someone,
Be someone they can rely on,
Take care of them and feel as one.

Kiss Me

Kiss me,
Beneath the stars in the cold night,
That I may stand strong and not fright.
Brush your fingers through my hair,

Never Ending Love.

I want you to really say those words this time,
The ones which make my mind intertwine.

It has been too long with this tension.

No Wrong Or Right

That is why it is good to like someone,
Who resembles no one.

Then you like the person for their true character,
