Teaser Tuesday: Extra Care by Alina Cosma (Poetry)


He wants to hold my hand in this race
Where everyone tries to keep the pace
Where every smile has a shadow of disgrace
He wants to be mine

He wants to be the reason to rise when I slide
The colours of day during night
And the knife that doesn't cut my life and
He wants to stay by my side

He wants to breath for me when I can't
And substitute carelessness with concern
And chase away the demons that haunt
Every single corner of my world

And I said to him
I don't know what you mean
I only know how I feel
I don't know what you dream
I only hear those screams

~ Screams, Extra Care by Alina Cosma

It is a collection of fifteen poems. All are reflective of emotions. One can easily relate to the poems as feelings and emotions are universal. The questions we ask ourselves and answers we find within the questions. I could get that and more. Do pick it up. This thin volume is worth it.

This is interesting. I've never been big into poetry mostly because I don't usually understand it, but this seems "real". I liked it.

I understand, Gautami. I had a dream (ok, a nightmare) last week that still has me spooked. But at least I can sleep again. Wonderful poetry in your teaser.
