Poem: Say Goodbye…

In the flickering light of the waning candle
I sit and remember all the stolen moments we would never have …

In the darkest hours of the night as the rest of the world sleeps
I sit and yearn for a future we’ll never have …

In the deepest, darkest corners of my heart
I berate the fates for sending you my way when it was too late …

At the very next breath I let myself wonder
What it’d be like, if the rest of my life were to happen with you by my side …

But as the rising sun chases away the lingering shadows
Reality pokes in, bringing with it
the bitter flavor of the tears unshed,
the terrifying want of unspoken longing
& a love that defies all logic & will go unfulfilled in this lifetime.

Dedicated to everyone who has loved & lost, because for one reason or the other, it was never meant to happen in this lifetime.

  1. lovely words that puts my feelings into words that i have not been able to write out.
    it’s such a wretched feeling to find someone and to actually not able to have that someone.
    it’s a wretched feeling to miss and yearn for something that might be so beautiful

    the wondering gets painful… :)
