End Of The Affair - Poem by Tariq Ahmed

End of the affair, a bitter sweet fading memory
Awakening the mind, and all things sensory

Entering into the fray, risks abounded from the start
Confounded by deep emotions, tearing my soul apart

Always left in the dark, caught in a love triangle
Finally caste-off, like some outmoded fandangle

Forgiveness is my virtue, intellect is my design
But reality bites hard, no more floating on cloud nine

My need for love is often greater than its want
But the reservoir of desire is no more in this font

End of the affair, time to move ahead
Lest I fear my life alone, sorrowful and full of dread

I will love again, but someone without the baggage
My life remains incomplete, without this dual carriage

Poet's Notes about The Poem

I found myself in a situation where I became caught in a spider's web. Minding my own business, a young lady approached me for help with regards to her need for love. Promises of her having ditched the previous guy were made in full, but in spite of my ongoing attempts to support her during what was explained to me as ‘harassment', she returned back to him, and time and time again. The pain of suffering was immense as her deceit and lies hit me hard. After six months, I truly gave up on her as she remained immature, brash and down-right selfish. I did truly love her so, but she betrayed me.
