In Love With the Enemy


In Love With the Enemy

Come with me
into the darkness,
where no boundaries impose.
Deep and Blue and Reaching,
the water of fate.
With a stained soul
I crouch in waiting-
knowing you hate me.
I will run and cry out
to break the agonizing calm,
for your silence blights the heart,
    and sorrow is not shame.

MindNumbing commented on In Love With the Enemy


Nicely written, my friend... there's a tangible angst between the lines of this and I can feel your pain as I visualize you screaming into the night, begging for just a little communication. Well done.

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.
