My Prince Charming - Really?

Certain but Naive
With sunrise in the scene, springs my prince charming
All tall and exquisite, a smile so disarming.
The heart escapes the being, and leaps strides to the horizon
To resign itself to this thirst, so marvelously deluding!

Hopeful still
The prince never seems to be in reach; Exasperatingly
But does the gullible heart relinquishes? Oh not so early!
It frantically journeys, to this glimpse so promising
For the mirage of love ahead, is still flickering.

Distraught and strained
Days and nights; Months and years of wandering
The anxiety finally enters, after an infinite era of waiting.
The heart though overpowered, clings to love, a feeling
But resigns when grasps, the path so long to recovery.

Wise and pragmatic
Healed and learned, but at the horizon I am still staring
Through the windows, the allusion of him is still thriving.
But the conscious heart knows the nuances of this living
And gladly accepts this time, just the sun rising.

    1. While writing it, I could actually sense the poem going onto different directions and I kind of liked it.

      Yes it is, very very difficult, when you see your dreams shattering. But it is also important to get real.

      And thank you so much for your motivating comments :-) I hope to live upto your expectations!

  10. This is indeed a deep poem- you have written with such great choices of words- which sweep open the curtains in my mind to see what the progression is-- very powerful! It is a piece that makes me sit very still and want to read it and read it again because there is so much meaning hidden in every single line (and between each line, in the silences). I loved how your beginning of each stanza actually can be taken apart and put together as a verse of its own-

    Certain but Naive
    Hopeful still
    Distraught and Strained
    Wise and pragmatic

    That combination of lines- tells the whole story- wow!!

    I liked the way you framed each line, When I read it the first time with something in mind I was able to relate to it. After going thru the comments I read it again with another frame of mind and was still able to relate to it. Wonderful :-)
