“ A Feeling ” ~ of neglect ~

Dormant feelings

Hold affair done,

Lacking measure

Bare rate begun,

That be a feeling

Seized of neglect,

Alas demeaning

Brings one regret,

The while lingers

In vain retrospect,

Hence a prisoner  

Who can but wilt,

Without ye detect

The emotional tilt,

Of allegoric affect

Forced so to endure,

With a feeling of guilt!

“ If Only ” ~ I’d known how ~

If only

I’d known how

To tell you

What I should,

Words that spoke

Of feelings then

We misunderstood,

We might’ve found

To comprehend,

There came a point

Our love affair

Rather than beginning,

Had started at the end!
