*** When We Fall Apart ***

Krakatoa roars lava flows
Natives scattered to death
Grasses no longer need a mow
Leaving no lives and wealth

I’d float like a feather
Falls into your abyss of devotion,
Drowns in your pond of murmur
Plunging in slow motion

Like Krakatoa, you expel your lethal blow
Shattering me into million pieces
But I'd stand right to the core
Of your devil’s glimpses

Your snowy little heart
As cool as your talk
No matter how no matter what
I’d come to you and do the walk

Please don’t leave me
If I ever hurt you
Shall I beg for mercy?
As my love isn’t true

One day when you find me stranded
Heading to the road of insanity
Straying to nowhere and unwanted
That’s the day love has gone awry

My heart turns blue unlike the roses
Bright red as our once passion
Why the halts and pauses
No more intense and seduction

Our love poem is reminder
Catastrophe of human tragedy
My blood bleeds like water
A sign of your cruelty


Marriage no longer exists
Those were the dreams
Your sweet sticky kiss
As good as it seems

When I go down to the soil
I’d carry your heart with me
Treasure our romance and brawl
From then to eternity

    Hi
    I could feel something from your poem.But I don't know definitely,
    something limitless, ineffable...

    really good piece.... dreams dont always come true for everyone... but its what you can hold on to, its what you have, what you have gained that matters. 10+

    Wowwwww... I just remember the song, 'Ocean apart, day after day...'
    You describe it so clear, love it's always complicated, , ,
    Ohohoho, don't give up, apart by ocean or land is not a measure (?) of our faith...
    The Great One! !

    Naru Kaede, ,

    My heart has been so torn asunder when God took my Beloved, but your understanding of it helps to make it more tolerable! Thank you!

    So sad, the deeper you love the stronger the pain when you don't get love back. Your poem is beautifully written. Thumbs up! Keep up your good work! JYJY

    agree with Maddy Macleod, Daniel Partlow
    (and i'm sure everyone thought so)
    it's a sad loss.
    i've never lost a lover cause i never have one
    (mother said that if you like someone you should marry him/her)
    But, did you mean Krakatao/krakatau?
    (Because as far as i know that's the name of.. mountain, right?)
