At Dusk Present: A Poem
At that time and at dusk it was present
I'm in reverie
on the banks of a river
my gaze looked sharply. while thinking
for a moment the shadow appears and goes
gave me a smile and hope
My soul that was at that time was longing
My soul that was remembering a lover at that time.
Now my chest is churning, like a heart beating
smoldering like the color of dusk coming.
envelop and keep burning yourself
Now my race is mixed.
grumbling in pseudo-esteem.
my eyes only describe your shadow
my longing just like my tongue that complains sometimes mention your name.
Now my body is trembling but my mind is still.
vibrate wants to hug even if only a shadow.
I am together with a strong desire
then confined and imprisoned in silence at the turn of the night.
dusk will go dark.
your shadow no longer appears and disappears in thought.
when the moon comes my eyes are closed.
Right now, my heart swallowed hard.
my longing is scattered to any place.
begin to dim with the sun closed
on the edge of a river.
I'm still waiting and waiting.
even though it's only your shadow
