And She Thinks Of Her Beloved - Poem by kanav justa

her lids conceal, not just the ache
but her dreams she shared with her love
the autumn in her eyes, awaits the spring
as she seeks him in the stars above

a smile upon her frowning face
she chuckles in the company of her mates
when alone she mourns and never stops
like an autumn leaf she slowly abates

she saves her tears for the next morn
for she knows, the sun won’t bring her joy
her frail heart like a paper torn
from memories of a lover boy

winter freezes her beating chest
and blur dwells in her eyes and face
her life runs in those endless loops
of memories entwined in time and space

the rising sun has lost it's worth
cool breeze never ease the pain
birds don’t tweet and sing in rhyme
no fun she finds in pouring rain

when trust and love and vows were real
why death it proudly came between
but death be not so proud and pleased
true love in hearts forever reign

    You reach the essence of losing one's life source Loss of Love, the meaning of life,
    of the simple ease of breathing. A beautiful deep understanding woven in the lines
    When love and trust and vows were real....

    As the greatest leveller, death has His own significance.. But in your poem there is a feel of loss that amounts to breaking the acceptance of a poetic convention. A touching poem, Kanav. (Report)Reply

    The bereavement of a relative, lover, friend or for that matter anyone close to our heart of course is an emotional avalanche. Though the theme of the poem is melancholic, your style of narration is majestic.10/10
