Lamentation - Poem by Wilfred Mellers

Written by: Wilfred Mellers
Monday, September 26,2016

There you were standing there so clear
As if you were an illusion in daytime
You appeared to me like an angel
I charged you where have you been?

We conversed for a while
My relatives came around
You didn't want to be witnessed
You commenced kissing me passionately
They came over and expressed concerns
"O! It's you. I will speak to you following."

A stranger came over and utters words discouraging
They said you were not genuine
You started stepping away forcefully
I clutched you by your wrist purposefully

Words I spoke from the heart
If you leave now you will see me nevermore
I let you leave and you wandered away
When you were at a distance, you stopped and beckoned my name
Once thought real was never true
Those days now has come to an end
