From the Pocket of a Dream

*The Saddest Memory*

“G”  is for Grief

I hope
that somewhere in this cold world
there is a cure
against the evil darkness
You and I
as the autumn leaves
maybe are falling
to the ground

I’ve tried to find the key
of the black cover that holds you
in its cold embrace
I failed
A love was born
among the strong words
inviting me into the magic world
We  were two strangers
suited so well together
our love was not enough
The weakness was larger
it never won over fears
In stead of staying alive
we’ve chosen to slowly die
You’ve become a dead poet
but for me still immortal
The one from my dream

I was prepared to haunt you forever
So I guess we’ll be good darling
I’ll  find you again
In another life

    Beautiful poem ….So powerful is your emotions which we can feel from this poem Why it was not able to override the fears I wonder?
    But as you say let us hope ….

    A poem at the beginning so dark and at the end with a bright shining light of hope..
    A very strong imagery that your piece creates..

    Possessiveness? – perhaps but not wrongly so – in the sense that in all lives we all belong… beautiful poem

    Powerful. For some reason, the passion in this poem scared me. The passion, the possessiveness. It was scary.

      Possessiveness…in the last words you mean?…well … not easy to let him go 🙂
      Thank you very much for reading Neeraja
