Perfect Fit?

you fit into me
like a hook into an eye

a fish hook
an open eye

"Lament"

Enough of these tortuous games,
no more withstand I can.
This agony try to understand, my Lady,
after all, I'm just a man!

Long have you toyed with my heart,
like a flame with naive moths.
Knowing full well my enamour of you,
nary a hint of your own thoughts.

Harshest of flames gives warmth,
atones thus for what is its wont,
then consumes the moth, leaving not a trace;
Empty hopes & false dreams you give, where's my quantum of solace?

Say 'yes', and this tale ends happily,
Say 'no', and I try to cope... NOT easily,
You say nothing, and what is that really,
but another shot to prolong my misery?

Go on then, try to find the one for you,
an Adam for every Eve, we were all made in a pair;
When futile your search ends, think of me and I'll be there,
I'm the one for you, I swear!

" WHY "

Pray! do tell,
why never you look my way?
Even as i compel,
my eyes from you not to stray.
Remind of something sad,
does my visage to you?
Memories past and bad,
of people you once knew?
Look at me, I am I!
Not from your past a lament.
Trust me, see it in my eye,
for me you were meant!
Do you think me ugly, not worth the glance of your eye,
or is it...(hush, heart! dont be silly), are you just shy?

The Four Ages of Man

He with body waged a fight;
But body won; it walks upright.
Then he struggled with the heart;
Innocence and peace depart.
Then he struggled with the mind;
His proud heart he left behind.
Now his wars on God begin;
At stroke of midnight God shall win.
--- W.B. Yeats
