A poem from the challenge word “GUARD”. Proposed by the exceptional blogger and poet Grexxen.
In a world where love is taken for granted, the act of actually protecting and guarding love ones is not as appreciated as it should be. Feelings, emotions and friendships need to be sheltered. When trust is laid on somebody, an intrinsic responsibility of guarding that trust is also is also laid on the-now guard. Silently the guard acknowledges the other person’s vulnerability, and now has the honour to secure it.
A poem on the shape of a AABBAA CCDDC
I give you,
A long time back, on a pale autumn’s day,
we set sight on each other, unable to look away.
Perplexed we stood in awe
for in our eyes we saw
eagerness to be wondered of all coulours, even gray,
and an unexplicable light that lures excitment here to stay.
Beguiling eyes, so smart
that speak a language to my heart
that tell no lies,
have no disguise
So, I guard all their stories since the start.
The power of your eyes is like a potion,
that stops the world and all its motion.
Of hues as the lagoon,
and bright as the moon.
They are deep and vast as the esoteric ocean,
guarding their wisdom is my only devotion
Your sight has a voice that speaks and even sings
of lost number, beauty and forgotten high kings
your eyes tell a story
of truth and glory
that I consistently guard with unbreakable strings.
Years passed and I crossed the wildest of desert dunes
Travelled the six continents by only hot-air balloons
Climbed the highest mountains
Swam in the deepest fountains
But I could never forget the time of those magical afternoons,
so siletly I promised to forever guard your eyes and their musical tunes.
Today, although silver shades cover my head, you came and confessed
that all this time being a guarding of my eyes was also your quest.
excitement in my eyes flared
when into our eyes I stared,
and saw the new life that was waiting for us to eagerly address.
