A Hell Turned Paradise

Rating: 5.0
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!

A poignant reflection elegantly crafted with clarity of thought and mind. A passionate piece with strong emotions. Thanks for sharing, Alem.

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.
