A Tale Of A Heart - Poem by Aayushi Saxena

I was happy and lone,
I was in my safe zone,
You came knocking down at my heart’s doors,
Even though it was doubly locked.

I said go away but you insisted to open,
I asked you why, what you want?
You said with an explorer’s curiosity;
That you have always wondered what’s behind.

I thought you were innocent and I unlocked,
The first one went down easily but the second one was hard to let go,
Here I was with my world open, we chatted for a while,
You said you never thought it is so beautiful inside.

I asked you politely if you would want to come in,
I knew you did and I knew I did; so I let you in,
We got to know each other more,
You asked why were the doors locked?

I replied with my eyes filled with salty waters,
That I am scared of being weaker,
You said a heart this pretty made you fall in love,
Accepting it with all the secrets and the fears.

You claimed it and I welcomed you,
You stayed with me in there and I did let you.
I painted the walls of my heart in your favorite colors,
No more locked doors and no more borders.

And then you changed your favorites stating that you were bored,
You didn’t like the walls anymore and wished to explore more,
You wanted to leave, walk straight out of those doors,
And one day you were just gone.

I waited and waited but the walls were torn,
I was in misery I was in pain,
I felt too weak to stand,
I crawled my way back to the doors to shut them again.

But as I stood there I realized it doesn’t matter anymore,
I don’t care who walks in or if any one walks in those doors,
I don’t need to lock them now that you have left,
As you took everything that my heart once owned.

    An insightful tale of heartbreak occasioned by disappointment in bliss of love, well articulated and nicely penned from the heart with conviction. Love is a voyage of bliss and spiritual experience that affects one profoundly. It's also whimsical and temperamental, appearing unannounced and may leave without warning, if it's not carefully nurtured by both couples at all-time to maintain its bliss. A lovely poem indeed. Thanks for sharing Saxena. (Report) Reply

    I painted the walls of my heart in your favorite colors,
    No more locked doors and no more borders.. you portray a great experience of love and at the end the great disappointment. that is life. if you come to experience a true love you are a lucky person. Everything is fleeting in this world. But continue to love. life is love. God bless you. tony
