Over a Limerence

Over a Limerence  


Her eyebrows the form of an arch 

The telltale trails of mascara 

A frantic scuttle to dissemble a tear

over a limerence as fleeting as petrichor


Her rose now wilting, fragile glass

Painful shards sticking out of her skin 

love comes with thorns on a rose 

Indelible prickles on the heart and soul



Sofia Kioroglou


I am a writer, a poet, a pilgrim, a missionary and a wife! I find writing to be a form of catharsis. My poems are imbued with deep empathy and begging for answers. Sometimes my lines are overlaid with religious nuances only to provide a compass for my journey in life and jumping-off point for my inspiration. I hate great talkers as everything runs out of them like leaky pitchers. Titles are ok but quite distracting when it comes to serving the immanent purpose of poetry. I have a book coming out in March entitled " Literary Journeys to the Holy Land". My poetry can be found online and in print. For more information, drop by my blog at:sofiakioroglou.wordpress.com
