Life In Dark
Poem By Natasa Tocuc
While I am me, and you are you
So long as the world contains us in dark,
Me the loving and you unwilling,
While the one love, must the other beloved.
My life is a dreamer at moment, I fear:
It seems too much like cloud, indeed!
Though I do my work I shall succeed.
But what If I fail of my charm?
It is but to keep the nerves at last,
To brown one's eyes and laugh at a summer,
And in hopelessness, get up to start again-
So the chase takes up one's love life, that's all.
While, look but once from your far away love,
At me so deep in dirt and dark,
So sooner the hopeless drops to ground
Than a new love, straight to the selfsame path,
I shape me
To be a dreamer
