Forever Gone

She went.
Because I wanted her to go.
Wanted her to go being hurt.
For hurting her I plotted the show
Just alike a smart director would do.

She went.
She came, as used to come as friend.
But either God or Devil played in my mind.
I wished her to go and not to come back again
For I knew, a new life I was about to begin.

She went.
I knew she would come to stay this time.
She would come to gift me my heart back.
She knew I longed so long for it so cared
She came to heal but returned her eyes blurred.

She went.
She came unaware of the fact going wrong.
She didn't know when I got changed.
She came with her smile as she would come.
Not aware that I decided her to dump.

She went.
As friend she came to meet me but you see
I received her as honorable guest.
so courteous I never used to be.
As perfect host I served her food and tea.

She went.
Before going she tried to find me in me
hiding behind the mask, not seen.
behaving like a stranger to a friend
very well could I enact till the end.

She went.
Her smiling face had gloom before she went
I knew I could make it get her trapped
in thoughts that would not let her feel
Back to see what made me make such deal.

She went.
Not having my heart returned to me.
Knowing but it lost it's worth be born,
somewhere she might have thrown it away.
Since then Heartless I'm happy going in my way.

    We humans have amazing trends
    Do things beyond our control
    Act too much to the makeup we wear
    Need it, still forgo it forever
    To finish and start things afresh...

    Its all because we think we are brainy
    May be We, They... Everyone
    Would have let that 'something' to forgone...
    In one or the other way...

    Well said. Great write.
    Enjoyed this, dear poet. (Report) Reply

    Palas, as all your poems this has a soul and heart. before going she tried to find me in me. its kind of bitter, painful, but did you finally let her go fully. no. Sandra has put it well, each time a relationship dies actually something inside us also dies. you have brought out the emotions, pain, disillusionment so well.10++

    Your title says it all. Each time we lose someone we lose a little of ourselves as well.
    Excellent write, very worthy of a ten.

    Kind regards,

    A good concept; a good play of words and a good structure chosen. But could have been shorter............9 (Report) Reply
