*** Coming Back To You *** Poem by Sulaiman Mohd Yusof

*** Coming Back To You ***

Rating: 4.0


Days fill with pictures
At the edge
of remotely located
heart broken dorm
Man made Chateau of horny pony
Little tales
Chanting your name as I wish
and desire
Akin to mentally
instability
The boy from the village
used to ask
'Where’s the girl? '
Your girl
is no longer your property
Timeless and counting
Miserable leads you
to the grave
Landscape of remedy
Deep buried
Lingers with whispers of
Longing dead
Honey,
You sat on my laps
Blew your words
To my face
‘I’m your woman’
The boy from the village
Used to say
‘Perfect couple’
Now
I can leave the world,
with you around
to smile
to hug
to cry on
The place
to lean on
Playing my mom
and sister
How cruel
To die young
No children
To watch them growing
Fading away
Similar to Fir’aun
Drowned in the Red Sea
Unable to lay our present
In the Oasis
Where Tamar tree
Grows
As we grow…




This is based on a true story and extremely tragic.I've lost the most valuable person in my life.We were 18, first year in College.On a camping trip, she was drowned.At that time, I was almost gone mad and was so close to commit suicide.Her name was Marleena, extremely beautiful and bright girl.
Hi Marleena, I missed you so much baby!

I'm glad you included the explanation at the end. I really wasn't sure I had the right meaning but I did. I really don't like this vertical word structure. It makes reading a real chore. A needless exercise. Your wording was excellant as it always is. GW62

Thank you for sharing this truly tragic heart-wrenching event with us. Your beautifully presented array of powerful emotions, your loving memories were, as always, truly alive, real and impacted me deeply. Dear sweet departed young lady, could anyone have remembered you and honored your memory more sincerely than this? An artist at work, Sulaiman, to the max. Thank you, Carol

This is tragic. It's always an agony to lose someone we love, and can nature's law be thwarted by any of us? A very well laid poem with words flowing in sequence. Be strong buddy. I pray may her soul rest in peace. God Bless.
