Lovely Darkness

Oh come, gently cover,
Sweet dark cloud of mine
Remove this infernal,
Eternal sunshine!
For naught do I notice
Its bright majesty
Nor the laughter the birds sing
Each morning to me.

So come, black romance
Veil me from my lids
And chide me in what
My honor forbids.
For passion speaks passionately
Of heart-worded things
Than a comfortable strife
Or dusty old rings.

But to be as a goddess in the eye of just one
If this not be true love, then true love will I none.

So come, black romance Veil me from my lids And chide me in what My honor forbids. For passion speaks passionately Of heart-worded things Than a comfortable strife Or dusty old rings. writing one's soul honestly is the poetry of this time. No need of weaving nicely but honestly is our demand. Old-masters weaved it so many and during so long time, now our thirst is for the truth. Well-written, write more, Run long Thank you 10+ Apoet Bangla
