FORSAKEN


Scented rain
violates the parched earth,
The leaves rustle in monotonous melody
In tune with my weary heartbeats,
The wind knowingly echoes my
sorrowful sighs,
The taste of yesterday's tears
Still lingers longingly, on
lips and cheeks
that you used to tenderly caress,
Lonely, forlorn tendrils of my hair
wave a final goodbye
to the empty spaces filling my heart,
like dark rain clouds rushing in
to fill a humid and hot sky,
I lay my lips softly
Whisper like,
for one last time
against the papery
offerings of your love,
Saddened but not broken,
armed and secure against the dark future,
with the painful knowledge,
that you would never return

O Love! thou makest all things even
In earth or heaven;
