Couple at Tea, Robert A. Sieczkiewicz

Be not a better way to make amend,
As I not with knowledge of infraction.
If it was I that to thee did offend,
Pray tell, as there will be rapid action.

Please smile for life so still is very vile,
Come close provide the magic of thy touch.
Show both thy eyes not a chilling profile,
Open thy heart for I not be nonesuch.

Thy displeasure has cut my heart so deep,
For it is to thee I have pledged my life.
Need to find a resolve before we sleep,
As it is love that made us man and wife.

Our union is one for eternity,
No matter the moment of anger be.

Visit to Loneliness, a poem by Robert A. Sieczkiewicz


Visit to Loneliness, Robert A. Sieczkiewicz

Today is just another yesterday,
The morrow is to be the very same.
It is for exemption for which I pray.
In my heart is a desire of a flame.
Requesting such a gain there be no shame,
For happiness is love of another.
Seek a new life is to be my druther.

To find love is a great aspiration,
As there is not light to show me the way.
Better be found than the consolation,
Of loneliness which leads to my dismay.
On the chair I sit, mind starting to stray.
Dreaming of a great love yet to be found,
Praying it to be prior to the ground.
