The only succour

May be , we could not
make it
to the hilt-
dreams , dreams only !
kiss of a princess languorous
seeking  seeking only –
a bird  lost as if ,
labyrinth of a stormy night ,
as smell of love lingering
in manifold folds of a linen
they all-
eluding eluding only !
yet,  a voice distant calling
‘mid cacophony of a busy street
to apologize , as if
a couplet clasp’d
clutching close close
to heart only.,..

  1. Louis Kasatkin

    At once poignant and visceral , the line ” a voice distant calling in the cacophony of a busy street ” ,captures the poem’s edginess ,the existential dread of a missed rendezvous.
