A stranger............

A stranger.

Hoping for one more word, one more glance,
One more smile please,
But, he left in withdrawal to his sweet promises,
Everything changed,

Made way into my life as a stranger,
The stranger that soon I loved,
Loved him for no apparent reason,
All of his became mine,

When our eyes met, once, I could feel his soul dancing in rhythm with mine,
A rhythm of love, we were bound together with strings of love,
Heartfelt smiles of ours, in disguise of our carnal thrill..
Lost in our own world of passion...

Now, that glance of his, no more the same,
Piercing deep into my heart, leaving me in agony..
Tearing away the the embedded part of him in me,
Denying my presence in him, carving ostensibly his absence in me...

Barren soul of mine, trapped, left alone,
Barely, I could speak the words on my lips,
Smiles and laughters, have deserted me,
A future that I had in my hands, dissolved

Yet, hoping for one more word, one more glance,
One more smile please,
But, he left in withdrawal to his sweet promises,
Everything changed,

But, once gone, let it be forever,
What's done, it is done,
What's said, it is said,
What's delivered, it is delivered,

Never can he unwind the time,
Never can he take back his merciless words,
His heartless deeds to me..
His departure, let it be for eternity

A lover, he was to me, once,
A stranger, he shall be forever.....

    Life is truly strange. Stranger than fiction. At times we become strangers to ourselves. Strange indeed this journey. Let it remain strange, so we can always make effort to explore the strange mysteries. (Report) Reply

Your eyes smile peace. The pasture gleams and glooms
