Letting love go #poetry

Not all true love lasts,
And if it ends, does it mean it wasn’t true?

He said, “Till we meet again.”
She smiled,
And they knew that this was farewell.

Before I go I must be sure
Of fortune’s will
And the bond that held us together
Of our intimate love strings
And when they were truly severed
Or why the fates that deemed us matched
Have now withdrawn their favour

Don’t leave without a word
For regret and spite will linger
Haunted by love’s bitter facade
Don’t say you can’t explain
For I’ll always wonder why
Daunted to ever love again

Tell me you love me
Then say it’s not the same
Tell me you don’t feel it
The way it used to be
For if you let me down slowly
You’ll still let me go,
all the same.

As the full moon pales
The love-light wanes in your eyes
Leaked tears of goodbye
Love that bloomed true as summer
Fades on sighing autumn winds


I hope you are all well.
I’ve been away this week,
But I’m back now, and glad to be so.

I believe, that to sacrifice a little of your own happiness for someone else’s,
Is the true essence of love.

Thinking out loud.

      Hey Punam, yes, heartbreak is a very ugly thing. I just approached this as a brace for what comes next, and in the end, closure and appreciation is the best recipe for loving anew.
      It’s definitely not a perfect world out there, especially with love

    Everything pretty in here! I don’t believe love ends, but transforms! It can become friendship, a memory or hate!
