Poet Lady Katz: new forum reply to I WOULD HAVE LOVED THEE MORE

New reply from Susan Katz

<p>Your poem has a very classical feel to it.  I can feel the emotion and the pain.  I'm sorry to say it is a bit long for the current request for two to four line poems.  I am always happy to read work submitted and thank you so much for your interest in poeteladykatz and for sharing your work with me, Susan</p>

<p>— Srijit Raha</p>
<p><br />I would have loved thee more<br />I wished thee stay for aye<br />Gripping my arms in breast of yours<br />So dimmed my wits that believed this life<br />But failed to notice its shadow.<br />Now I score thy grave to see thee more<br />And sleep with thee in this dark meadow.<br />My prose for thee have grown into weeds<br />So stiff, so pale…<br />With lifeless views.<br />My blood had shrank in inks of nibs<br />That sketches the ribs of yours.<br />I smell thy hairs<br />I smell thy torcs<br />And kiss it over and over<br />To cry in thee,<br />To be in thee,<br />To fade in thee forever.</p>
