Ashes Of Love

Burn me to ashes
and throw them in the air
when you see flashes
to that area please stare
keep opening your eye-lashes
you may find me there
a piece of me might fly
and settle on your hair
but will you know me
will you be aware
or will you mix me
with the dirt of the air
***
say the naked truth
please do swear
to come to my grave
only if you care
then feel your own soul
and you will find mine there
tell me your feelings
your pain with me share
and then mixing souls
will be no longer rare

    Wow, I’m touched, impressed and speechless. It’s very deep, strong and gloomy. Your words are golden and your idea is unique; it’ll stick in the mind of your reader for ages. I’m NOT exaggerating but seriously this is beyond amazing and I think you are a great poet with a great natural talent. Keep up the good work

    I wouldn't change anything

    I am one of those who has taken many lives to learn that
    the omnipresent God is inside each of us..
    providing all we need. I no longer need be under the illusion
    that one needs completion from another.

    It has been a very bitter school.

    I really love the rhyme scheme in this. I find it hard to rhyme without sounding light and somewhat childish, but you manage it beautifully.

    If you really love me
    Gaze on the sky
    When it is midnight
    You will see me
    Among the twinkling stars

    If you really love me
    Feel me within your soul
    I shall be always
    with you.
