Colossal Quantity Of You


Enthralling the atoms of my depth

I’m trapped inside a chasm that only love can shatter


You belong to a distance that cannot be reached

Your heights are far from the fingers of my hands


How I see the colossal quantity of you

You’re too vast to define like infinity of the abyss


Love is what you lay in the vicinity of my core

I’m a prisoner without severe punishment


You molded me and shaped me as your other symbol

This spectacle of me is your cheerfulness


I’m looking at you above and beyond

There you are bigger than my earth

    Lovely poem. Thanks a lot for the like on my post. Do you also write poems under the topic, ‘Nature’?

    You capture so well that feeling of someone encapsulating your whole world and opening you up to a whole new one…

    Beautiful! “You molded me and shaped me as your other symbol, This spectacle of me is your cheerfulness”- loved these lines especially. I feel these lines gives a lot more meaning to your title.

    Your experience of love of this proportion may be where you have been fortunate – despite any agony associated with its loss or change, but as one of your readers I find myself to be a very lucky one. Beautiful thoughts, sentiments expressed in a beautiful lyrical frame.

    • thanks for such a sincere and awesome comment 🙂

        I appreciate passion in poetry, a quality that can only come from within, hence, sincerity. Your poems are “sincere and awesome”, so I felt the least I could do was to comment the way I have. Next time, I will try to give you more specifics as to what I mean when I say your work is “awesome”.
