My Own Valentine - Poem by Anamika Raj

I sit here, caressing every memory
Like the cheeks of a delicate infant.
For I displayed my hollow bravery
By loving him, with no commitment.

Like a soft breeze he entered my life
Unfurling the fragrance of ardour.
Like a ravaging storm, away, he wiped
My devotion, creating a mental disorder.

I was a lonely, wretched recluse
Until he invaded my deserted realm.
Crafted me in the silhouette of a muse
Gifting me, my own liberty's helm.

Life was lost in an uncanny neverland
With merely his presence around.
Seclusion, with him, didn't taste bland
My true soulmate, in him, I found.

No doubt, he was an altruistic saviour
Sent from heaven to break my bounds.
My fault, I considered him a lover
His ladylove, I wished to be crowned.

Away, far far away, he has gone
Near in beats, but distant in sight.
Enough of this melancholy and moan
I need to maintain my glossy light.

For he taught me to love and live
My darkest fears, my wildest fantasies.
Oh I won't ever be able to forgive
For judging him like an awful disease.

I will, forever, groove in my own shine
Consuming the blissful esctatic fluid.
Darling, I will be my own Valentine
Until I'm chosen to be loved by the cupid.

    Pathos in the poem so beautifully painted.
    Away, far far away, he has gone
    Near in beats, but distant in sight.
    Enough of this melancholy and moan
    I need to maintain my glossy light.
    A poem that would urge every reader with a loving, compassionate heart to read this poem and start adoring you as a woman of substance and simultaneously admire you as a great poet. What a lovely Valentine you are! 10+++++++++
