R.S. Mallari

Your Love, My Life

A dark night sky without the moon
A hollow vase without the flowers
A cold chimney without the fire
A sail boat without the wind

The flowers die and decompose
As the rain no longer kisses the soil
The trees no longer bear fruits
As the butterflies and bees refuse

It’s all darkness and gloomy nights
The morning sun has decided not to rise
The rainbow will not even show
As the leprechauns stop chasing the gold

Don’t you understand how it goes?
How everything needs reason to flow
Don’t you see? and get it by now?
I am nothing, without your love

About R.S. Mallari

Through poetry I am trying to break the barriers of ethnicity, cultures and even beliefs for we humans have the same emotions, the same desires and aspirations. We may differ in colors, in language, and food that we eat yet we are still living under the same sun, swimming and sailing on the same seas and sleeping under the same stars.

Everything needs reason to flow...and we are nothing in absence of love. Nothing to add...Perhaps St. Paul's famous letter...

Thanks Eileen, there are times that words just pop up and lines being made without thinking..

This poem is one of them.

Through poetry we can inspire others, we can make someone smile and words can make others cry be it of joy or sadness.
