Love Away From Love - Poem by tharmingam khangrah

Being too sanguine in love was a crime
Thinking love is sacrosanct I presumed
NOTHING will obstruct our union
Days of wailing really dawn unannounced
Distance (the sweet escapade) took me away from love.
Suffocation days are finally gone
Wound of love is healed but scar remains.

The key of love is now corroded
The alarum of pain sounds unceasing.
Hoping to forget the rusted past
And to pilot my unfathomed grief
I walked away from home
To seek a philosophic home away from home
To discover love away from love.

I have finally exiled my soul from home
Finding my path in a smoking city
Coming home late is something beyond addiction
Eager to steal a bite off corporate life.
This sucking journey nurtures my thought
Was born in the hills welcomed in the plains
Where romanticism is extinct, I now realize
Those days were simply a nightmare
To visualize love as a complete world,
Reality bites I still survive sans love.

Yet there are still sleepless nights to haunt,
Long forgotten shapes and contours resurface
To verify that I have trodden on fire once
The penance of unfulfilled love I bear.
Sometimes, me think it’s the heart that wails,
My efforts to feign positive thinking crashes
Whenever I see the remnants of the past
Where my heart was so near to love.
