My Way To The Grave - Poem by Alokendra MITRA

Like a meteor in the sky,
You came,
Flying right into my life,
And, out of it in no time.
Turning in moments,
Moments too brief,
My life, forever a celebration,
Into a dark shadow of grief.


But, missed, you shall not be,
My dear,
For, there burns in my self,
A flickering flame,
That keeps me sane,
And,
That makes this wreck exhale and inhale
As I dig my own grave,
With an epitaph that reads,
“ONE WHO LOVETH FOREVER”

Topic(s) of this poem: love

    :)

    You used great use of the stanza though... With the following parts, both the poems have a similar yet very different meaning :)

    Interesting... You used these identical stanzas, in this poem and your other poem 'Yours No More'.. But the following parts made the differences... Well thought out poems Alokendra.. You certainly have a talent to write about similar experiences from a different light and that is interesting..

    Thank you for your poems.. Welcome to Poemhunter btw :)
