    CAN'T RESIST

    I smell her fragrance
    miles away from the horizon
    Inviting scent I can’t resist.
    My wounds are finally healing.
    My tarry in the dark,
    over it’s fast becoming.
    Rays of light I see
    emerging from the pride of the east
    more like the light I used to know.

    So beauty still dwells.
    Still dwells in the world of uncertainties.
    So light awaits me,
    even at the end of the tunnel
    So the promise Time gave
    the promise of healing
    empty it’s not after all…..

    I’ll patiently wait.
    Wait the unveiling of my second half.
    I see brighter tomorrow beckoning.
    Like tomorrow beckons humanity.
    Don’t blame me if I heed
    I just can’t resist the call.

    "Rays of light I see emerging from the pride of the east more like the light I used to know" — this is an extremely beautiful line.

    Wait the unveiling of my second half. This line is really good, much better than I have read in a long time. The whole is also good. I can feel something but not sure if it is intended.

    SO SWEET, I LOVE EVERY WORD. MEANS SO MUCH TO ME. THANKS

    Poetry is either something that lives like fire inside you or else it is nothing, an empty formalized bore around which pedants can endlessly drone their notes and explanations.
