Spread the love


My night is shattered and hope shivers in a distant
For the only star I had in the sky died today
I loved her. On my knees I buried a red rose
In her hands, told her sickly sweet tales under
The moonlight and cap her in my arms
Against the ruffling cold breeze.
I rode to the moon and back like Armstrong;
The astronomist to see her sorrows seize,
So we could stand tall like a birch tree
At the centre of the forest catching the glance
Of jealous shrubs.

My pen grieves and sings the saddest lines.
Could we not have looked beyond the kinks?
I loved her. My soul is a vapid vale with her absence.
It stings like the sharp sting of an injured bee
When my mind swings me to the memory lane.

I know ants could easily be crushed but..
Never knew I were one of them.
Along the way, you disappeared and
I could only catch your sweet aura which
Still sweets the veins of my nose.
But why you walked out of the door
Is still a mystery my eyes cannot see.

My soul is raped of joy
For the treasure I tried shielding
Slid through my fingers
Before I could realize it.
Here I lay vacant in your denial
Of my syrupy love.
Do I say I’m stultified
Or you just weren’t mine?
