Cravings

Love, laughter,
Seduction, erudition,
Pleasure, closure,
Peace, protection,
Passion, devotion,
Selfish deviation,
Practical satisfaction,
Comfort, camaraderie,
Effortless bonds,
Numbness.

Profound power,
to act and react,
on what matters most.
Stub ridicule,
Spite sarcasm,
Erase negativity,
Glow in the glory,
Of undemanding goodwill.

To smile with eyes.
To leave behind a soul.
To be craved when here.
And to remain when gone.

Wonderful poem....the last four is simply superb....
"To smile with the eyes
to leave behind a soul
To be craved when here'
and to remain when gone"...

Here is mine....

These lines are wonderfully put together. The way you meshed some of these words in the same line, some of them opposites almost was great. Excellent!

Vinay said...

I agree with Rashmi :-) You took the whole poem's beauty and doubled it in those last four lines! Very nice!

Beautiful cravings. Ending was most effective.

Aaron Davis said...

Upon seeing the title, Cravings, I immediately have in mind the sort of things this poem might mention. I love how your poem flowed from those things at the start to a much deeper ending!

Succinct and nice flow to the words!

I think that's what we are all looking for - to be remembered for what we are when we leaves. Seemingly random but capturing all our inner thoughts.
Thanks Nonsensefile!
