On life and love … Infiltration

I turned my face away from love

to walk life’s path alone.

I wanted no space for regret or pain;

I yearned for a heart like stone.

I thought I had made the barricade so strong;

I walked on unafraid … but a tremor

filled my veins today as a song had ended.

How did you infiltrate my soul

that has been so long defended?

I don’t really want to know-

but it’s much too late-

for I felt music break apart my heart,

adagio … .

    I have returned to your pages here after a break of few days. I expected to be delighted, yes, but I certainly did not expect to be bowled over in the first instance. This is transcendental.

    I don’t know quite what to say in response, Shermeen .. I’m not at all eloquent when complimented .. thank you seems inadequate somehow – but I thank you very much.
