A Hell Turned Paradise - Poem by Alem Hailu Gabre Kristos

My beloved
I always remember
Once my soul
Had taken a ride
On a marital-bliss river
Jubilant nothing or no one
Could put us asunder.

But after I learnt
You have sown mistrust
On the fertile ground
Of my heart
When you cheated on me
Wilfully letting
A cherished corner
To a lover another
The quite donning
Ecstasy's river
Which I happily
Used to ride
Had taken leave
For ever
To uncharted water!

Bringing warmth
To my hearth,
Once you had made
My life a paradise on earth
Soon to change it to
An earthly hell
Worse than what sinners
Expect after death!

    It is written nicely, and I love the meaning behind the words. Turning something so heart wrenching into something so equally heart wrenching, it isn't easy. Beautiful work. (Report) Reply

    Your words are true, cheating by a partner is pure hell, deadlier than death, it rips your heart out and tears your soul. My heart goes out to your friend, it is a difficult thing to have to deal with, there are so many other women out there who deserve a love that's true and would never cheat on them. Hopefully, one will find him soon. Thank you for expressing the pain of a cheaters lies, it may help others to know of this deceit that could happen to anyone. RoseAnn (Report) Reply

    Thank you
    A close friend of mine suffered a lot. Living abroad he invested his time and money on his girl who was not faithful.He missed so many honest girls in the mean time
