As we sauntered on the patio of our dreams
A galaxy of hopes embraced us, bestowing mirth and ebullience
The grey clouds of hopelessness and despair
Gradually ebbed away.
Alas! Little did I know, this blissful togetherness
Was destined to be ephemeral.
Your sudden retreat to a serene world on the other side
Robbed me of the last vestiges of exuberance.
I’d so much to say, my silence brawls
To break through the diaphanous walls of my forlorn heart.
I sit and pine
If you can listen to the unsung song of my heart
If you can see the yearnings of my disquieted soul,
The raw, vulnerable and melancholic me.
Those unvoiced emotions and unspoken words
Echoes deep, despite being incarcerated
In the shackles of nostalgia,
Behind the gossamer of unknown quest of unfinished love.
Often under the ambrosial moonlit skies
My resilience sparks and hope glimmers
Gazing at the brightest of the dazzling stars
My brooding eyes grapple to utter
Those unrevealed feelings and emotions
Which I never got an opportunity to reveal.
Still now, I await a rendezvous with that star
To speak the unspoken and unfinished words
To celebrate the memories of your sojourn with me
Only us, amidst the utopian realm of happily ever after!
