Why I Loved You - Poem by Shanto Armonde

Your long brown curls of hair,
Danced gently, free of care.
And your big and beautiful blue eyes...
Possessed the power to hypnotize!

Your lips so luscious, I longed to kiss!
A kiss that would fill me with eternal bliss.
And yet you threw only a sweet word my way.
I'll never know the message you tried to convey.

Your beauty grew with every hour,
Though your apathy turned me sour.
Then you sent me a quiet smile...
I sat transfixed - lost for a while.

Then came that last of evenings,
That tore away my piteous heartstrings.
I knew I'd be left with a battered heart,
Although I knew not why we had to part.

So lovely you were in your heavenly gown,
Moving like a careless queen with crown.
You turned and left into that future unknown.
And I was swept away further from your throne.

I kept you alive in my dreams, to cherish everyday,
And those memories sets my mind in disarray.
I regret not falling in love with you,
But why I lost you - I never knew.
And I see you now, here, there and everywhere
I am what remains - a casualty of this sad-ended affair.
