Humans go dirty to manage their fancy. We are reluctant so we perform the unexpected. The greedy gut that most got, Is what that's chewing us hollow. We keep supplementing our useless necessities. We work for rapacity. And the famished voices, hope. This sphere is no more humane towards man. Everyone's looking for blood and not for love.
The term 'afterglow' is a noun referring to the light remaining in the sky after sunset, or the enjoyable feelings remaining after a pleasurable experience. Through this poem, I've attempted to combine and include both meanings. Thank you for reading. Blessings, Carolyn
AFTERGLOW By Carolyn Glackin Streaks of gold and crimson hues Adding beauty to their views The sun has set not long ago And so begins the afterglow
Warm night air, the stars out shining Hand in hand, two hearts aligning Their spirits high, their voices low Their heated passion starts off slow
Their loves plays out beside the fire Driven by a wild desire Where fools rush in, these two now go Headed toward the afterglow
A tidal wave with grand crescendo Started off by innuendos The flirty ways that lovers know Surround them in the afterglow
A thrilling rush, a wild ride Leaving them both satisfied Starry eyed, their dreams now flow Two lovers in the afterglow
Moon above shines gentle beams Day is done for now, it seems In love's embrace, to sleep they go While basking in the afterglow. Copyright Carolyn Glackin 5/6/2019.
All day she was singing a doleful solo song. Are you hearing my sweetheart ? In the wilderness forest there was a sad melody the humming voice of a pity soul about whom she was singing for whom she was waiting what was the concept of that song what are all the consequences she is expecting behind those lyrics !
She didn't want to reveal the truth to this fake world. She never expected this accident. She never expects anyone's wishes Her only expectation is his love. Her only need is his care and affection.
She was waiting for those conversations : Are you so close to me chummy ? Are you the force attracts me yummy ?
All she wants is those "chit chat" No argument ! Only amusement !! This is the time for peak enjoyment !!!
To whom she have to prove ? To this fake world ? To this fake people ? To the law and order ? Not necessary ! From day one to till her last breath, she is "true and genuine" to him. But the fact is, No one is ready to hear. Nobody understands. No one accepts the purity. God knows and you too !
For the nights are too long, and lives are too short, it's easy when you have stars by your side, But when you carry them on your shoulders, You carry the loads of millions of lives, It involves a mixture of emotions, affection and fear. For the guns we carry are mere tools, real weapon is duty, Duty that demands courage, sacrifice and will.
