My last Wish

That bond broke,


I prayed,l protested,

Reminded you of beautiful days,

Endless chatter, innumerable smiles ,

When the time we together beguiled.
I cried ,I fought and fell silent,

Pain submerged like lava molten,

A crust of calmness did it  get,

I learnt to move with time fervent.
You another world had sought,

My soul,  shadow of my former self,

Reconciled and stopped to brood,

In a colourless chasm devoid of joy,

 I buried myself and my passions rude.
I forgot the former days of love,

I forgot endearing words that hurt,

I forgot crooked smiles you had ,

I forgot embraces with which you clad,

I forgot those kisses and touch divine,

All gestures loving yours and mine.
A fairly calm life did I inhibit

Till an angel alighted from above,

Promised to fulfill one wish of mine,

Oh! Foolish of me what did I do ?

Couldn’t think beyond love of thine.

Wished YOU again in the life of mine.


What do you think?

  1. Beautiful! One truely cannot forget love even after losing it. The passions may get an outer calmness like a molten lava but then it again surfaces at the slightest provocation.
    How wonderfully you explained it ma’am
