The Heart Is A Lonely Hunter


The Heart Is A Lonely Hunter
a poem by Mel Avila Alarilla


The heart is a lonely hunter
It seeks the places of previous
love, joy, reminiscings.
It yearns for a love that has been lost.

There in the periphery of time and space-
a love that has been sought was veiled
for the eyes to see.

How lonely is the world without one's love.
Looking at the empty walls,
only tears are the companion of one's soul.

As life begins to slowly ebb from this frail body,
I yearn to see once more the love I have long
sought for.
Wherever she may be, I hope she will realize
just how much I miss her.

My heart cries out in pain, the throbbing sobs
of the hurts embedded deep in my soul.
As the melody wafts in the inner chamber
of my mind,
I recall the wonderful days of years gone by
when we were together.

Now that I am on death throes
how I long to see your face once more,
To gaze at your winsome smile, To be reassured again and again,
that you love me.

Ah, that would be enough to calm the storm
raging in my soul.
As the cold misty air of the twilight time
descends on my empty body,
Let me hear once more your angelic voice
saying for the last time that you love me.
Again and again. Until the end.
Until the very..............end.

Hi sis Pia,
No, it's not just deep longing but a sense of loss and very deep pain. Long have I wanted to chat with you to unburden myself but I am quite shy about it. Thanks for your visit and comments. God bless you always my dear friend.

It sounds like the heart is very picky with happiness hehehe just kidding. it's true, it's the heart that controls out emotion. i wonder kung anong makapagpapasaya sa heart. yung happiness na walang katapusan.

Hi Shy,
Yung happiness na walang katapusan ay matatagpuan mo lang kay God. I hope you are all fine and in the best of health. Thanks for your visit and comments. God bless you all always.
