... And you bid this mortal world adieu!


... Leaving a gaping void,
In this heart that has managed to stay buoyed.
... Left alone in the lurch,
I searched, but in vain, for my Lords church.

... It seemed your job was done,
For our string had come undone.
You departed from my soul,
... Leaving behind a living ghoul.

I was but shattered, grimacing in agony and pain;
... Ne'er would I be the same again!
I cry alone, here forlorn...
Now, that you are forever gone.

My cries have now reduced to a sob.
... The heart, still wincing, continues to throb...
I miss you loads, downcast I remain;
Ah... Good times do but little to anodyne that inner pain.

I'd always tried, to be the perfect lover...
But all I wish now- to be united with you forever!
A time will come, whence I too shalt rest.
Ne'er again... Shalt we remain at His behest...

That was dark but lovely! :)

Diva said...

Its strange how all good things in life always come to an end... Love they say Lives forever... But, if it only did for real!!! Its strange how life seems so meaningless once love leaves!!!! It feels so empty..
And we all try to be the perfect lovers(as u say in ur last stanza) when we are in love,... only to know later that wat was perfect for us, was probably not enough for the person who left us, devastated in love!!!!

Priya said...

Love is sweet and painful. People miss or long for others and the time helps to heal and know the other person more or much better.

@Sameera
Thank you. There is beauty in darkness...

@Diva
I won't say it's strange dear... Nothing is forever. I dunno about this 'love' though. Is it all-pervasive? I will find out some day... I guess...

Kartz said...

@Priya
Yes, time- ultimate healer... Thank you for your thoughts.

Kartz said...

@Descrying the shadows

Thanks for reading bro'... Well, It isn't quite off track. He feels that she has gone, prematurely, and their physical togetherness ended abruptly. Which... To him, seems grossly unfair.

Hope you can comprehend now...

Peace.
