Loved, Lost

1-Puri 072

She knew the dark alleys of his heart
She knew no longer her name was etched
In ivory light.
She knew bidding adieu was like
Closing the door of her sand made castle
With an iron bolt.
So she sat and watched the waves
Counting the numbers as they come
Drowning a single memory
With each one.
And, countless they were
(but so were her chimeric dreams)Β 
Finally, she stopped, but the waves did not
Cascading wildly
In her bleeding heart!

  1. Looking for some inspiration bedtime read before I end my day and I’m glad I stumbled upon this treasure! Thank you for such a well written piece.

    Just want to tell you I enjoyed it very much.

  2. So touching, painful… and lovely! You were able to replicate the anguish of a broken heart through your words!

  3. Because she.”.knew the dark alleys of his heart” …because she knew him so well she could know that her name was no more etched
    In ivory light.
    Love is just a dream. Chimeric sand castles…ret ke gharonde

  5. coming to terms with the loss of love is always a struggle,
    a struggle that needs to be won if we are to survive emotionally and move on..but the memories endure.
    A fine offering, Maniparna

    big hugs


  6. I really felt, what you felt through your words, its never a good thing when it happens…we learn though, that some times it is one sided, and in closing the door though it takes time…what does not kill you makes you stronger. Written beautifully and genuine even if it was because of a sad moment. It shows the realness of your heart! Hugs!

  7. I really like the idea of being able to drown a memory with each wave. Excellent imagery really…..and so nice to see you at Poets United.

  8. Better to have loved and lost.. than never to have loved at all.. the concept is so vividly portrayed here in your verse. Beautifully executed.

    Lots of love,
