A Gift I Got Being In Love
Now that you came and went just like a breeze,
Now that I no longer feel at ease,
Tell me, are you pleased?
A snap and my world was upside down,
It seemed just moments ago, when you adorned me with a crown.
A fling or testosterone on the hike,
I do not know, I won’t try and find.
Your voice was desperate,
Seemed it is just what you needed that night.
Your confession and then a transition,
Shattered my existence and emotions.
The touch of your lips on my skin,
The feeling I can never explain.
Your trickling tears moistened my face,
You owned my soul and this was no amaze.
I could have fought the world with a sword,
Had you decided to stand with your shoulders broad.
While deep down, I still searched for my soul,
This moment just pushed it down all the more.
Vacuum is what I feel,
Scarred and tattered rests my will.
You asked me to not let you feel bad,
It kills me from within, but I do not want to see you sad.
Seems my love was just not enough,
To bind your soul and make you my other half.
Not that I hold hatred or there is any grudge,
Dead from within and smiling outside, this is how I fudge.
All I seek is you to be happy and blessed,
Do not worry about me and be stressed.
While with all my heart, I want you to be content,
When it comes to mine, I just want it to fall silent,
I just want it to fall silent!
