Exposure | A poem by Wilfred Owen

Exposure | A Poem by Wilfred Owen

This is one of the finest poems written by Wilfred Owen, in the backdrop of WWI.
In this poem, he talks about how the soldiers sentiently keep waiting for the possible exposure to death, in the poorest of weather conditions. Always ready to die, their brains ache. ‘But nothing happens’. It highlights the effect of the weather on battle-weary soldiers and in addition puts their plight into context when it momentarily touches on the dream of a return home.

Prayer Before Birth | Poem by Louis MacNeice

The poem beautifully presents the thoughts of the poet through the mouth of the baby who is still unborn.

He simply knows that the world is too evil that he will not be able to sustain here, given its innocence.

Uncertainty

My love for her was like A merry go round Round and round it goes Where it stop nobody knows. Oh yeah, Words alone couldn’t explain, The feeling she gave me It took me to places never been before.

I realised loving can hurt One can love someone to an extent Letting that person go becomes hard And this is what makes us humans.

Our End

Slowly we fade away, Do you think we’ll ever be okay? Always sad, I wish this was just a fad. Always broken, knowing what we once had. Remember it could be worse, Lost in thought,…

A heartbreak poem, where the speaker expresses his agony and torment due to lies that were told to her. She wonders if she is the only one suffering or is it both ways.
