    AS WE GROW OLD

    Your eyes are my salvation
    Without them I do not exist
    Watching you sitting there, immobile
    Exalted into other dimension
    Heart beating fast as no tomorrow
    Hollow eyes scream for love
    Wrinkle body asks for more
    Within rhymes and sounds of music
    Wishing for youth and move again
    Dreams of lust now forgotten
    Open gates, broken sword
    Drops of fire saved for you
    Lights, stars and constellations
    This is our fate, grey hair shown
    Exit the highway life carries on
    Find shelter within the walls
    The years came forth
    We reached the golden age
    And as the years goes by
    Old and tire still loving
    Wishing to be reunited
    With the one I loved

    A wonderful piece on the mystery of aging. Every sentence recalled the memory of a loved one. Very touching work telling what is what was and what's to come.

    nice work. your poems are very unstructured and flowing.

    Poetry is not an expression of the party line. It's that time of night, lying in bed, thinking what you really think, making the private world public, that's what the poet does.

    Allen Ginsberg (1926-1997) U.S. poet.
