Double mind

Frustrated, agitated,
Torn inside,
To listen to the voice,
Of my conscience or pass it by.
I have learned to let it go,
For it is not my battle,
To fight.
But I couldn’t watch
Her writhe in pain,
For she didn’t deserve it all over again.

He walked away,
Nice and slow,
Strong and sturdy,
She watched him go.
From far away,
She stretched out her hand,
To reach out to him,
For one last kiss,
For one last touch of his hand.
But he had long since left
Her world, yet within,
Her, he dwelt, lived
Within her, havoc he played.
She couldn’t break free
Of his fatal clutch,
For his touch, was all that was real.
Restless nights passed,
She forced it out
Of her mind,
Till one night she woke up
Jilted and full of fright.
Was he really gone?
Was he real?
Who was he?
An illusion her mind had made... she decided.
For in reality, it was no fairy tale.
It was just a game.

Indeed such emotions are just fleeting which we sometimes mistake as love. Love is beyond just emotions, it's a space unfulfilled and which could never be filled feelings but all it needs is faith.

Life's no fairy tale, but it's not a nightmare either.
Tough times do pass, and the storm is weathered, it tempers steel and makes it soft. For good.

Nice read.

Love is not always perfect is it. And neither does everything end well always. Wonderful poem, madame:)

fairytales are over rated anyway dude! :P " There are two tragedies in life, one is to lose your hearts desire, the other is to gain it." - George Bernard Shaw. Give me tragedy i say! :P

Oxymoron said...

totally agree with kneehara
fairytales are over rated...life is not fun without it's healthy doses of heartbreak and pain...i dont want a happy life it's the happy ending that i desire....
your writing is very good...it touched all the right chords...
