"Love is an untamed force. When we try to control it, it destroys us. When we try to imprison it, it enslaves us. When we try to understand it, it leaves us feeling lost and confused." -The Zahir

In my mind
she's dressed in an uninspiring red
wearing in her hands
a violin of the same shade--
her form--her deceptively dull form
against a vista of excessively pink sky
in my mind.

In my mind
I attribute an image to the cause of this pain
In my mind,
she lives as lives my pain,
as real as my pain.
In my mind,
she lives in dull red
as my pain lives;
outlined with black tree trunks
and red leaves
her and there,
carelessly strewn by the wind
on the path,
in hte air...
I my mind,
the sky right overhead
and the horizon beyond
is bright pink
in a pattern--some mysterious pattern--
that has to do with this pain.
The thrill the colours and patterns create--
dull red, pink, vermillion, black, pink...
it has something to do with this pain
it has something to do
with this locked hope
that she will come out of that image
into my real world
and make it special.

In my mind
the image has a special feeling
embed in the colours and strokes
that couldn't live in my reality.
In my mind
she lives forever
involved in a mysterious relationship
with this pain and hope...

In this poem, I write about how one of her color drawings seem to capture that feeling I used to have with her.

WOW. I am almost speechless. You made it seem so real. I could see her standing under the tree, holding her red violin, and I picture tears running silently down her face. This is AMAZING. You are SO talented. Can you please check out my work too? I would love to know what you think :)
