We were there once. 

Posted: August 8, 2017 in Heartache

There is a story. On the arches and bows of your magnificent body. There lies my constellation of beautiful dreams with heartwarming endings. There lies a rock with our initials carved like a trademark. There is our innocence with formidable truth that transcended cliches. There I lie awake in the middle of the night to have conversations with your back. Words unspoken with only my eyes on your canvas of unmet promises speak to me. There used to be us. 


Now what?

What’s missing ?

He wonders,


I lie,


No one,

Will ever


Be you!

The part of me,

A soft fragile tissue,

A flesh once entered,

Is dried, rugged and shrunken,

Wilting, unwavering to change,

Closing its edges anew,

Trying not to bleed,

Vowing to never fit,

Anyone’s but his.

You chased him away,
Is what they all say,
You loved him too much,
And he couldn’t stay.

You suffocated him,
You let him sink,
You loved him too much,
And he couldn’t breathe.

To her He was inadequate,
To what she saw was enough,
I gave him my all,
He couldn’t give me more.

They say you died when you met me,
I say we died when we couldn’t be,
What they never left us to be.

I am not ashamed,
For I love you as if its our last day,
I will hold you like you are made of clay,
I will drown you with all that I pray.

You are my raison d’être,
The shroud of my scars,
The resurrection of death,
I chose you before I met you,
My forever started yesterday.

She will have your forever,
The first light on your face,
The Sunday morning breakfast,
The last kiss of the day,
The newspaper with croissants,
The laughter of your kids,
The embrace of home,
The “what shall I bring for dinner”,
She will have eternity
For that’s where you chose to be.

And you will have me,
A cosmic purpose more grand
With you and I being less,
Somehow is being more,
I will believe in anything,
Than less of you alone.

If love was enough, you would be here.

If love was enough, I would have won your heart.

If love was enough, you would choose me.

If love was enough, you would have leaned on me.

If love was enough, you wouldn’t have felt inadequate.

If love was enough, I wouldn’t want this bottle of vodka.

If love was enough, I wouldn’t question if you had felt the same.

If love was enough, I would love you by myself.

If love was enough, I wouldn’t need a constant sense of assurance to you not leaving me.

If love was enough, I wouldn’t have doubted you will always stay.

If love was enough, I wouldn’t cry as much.

If love was enough, I wouldn’t write this much and say less to make you understand the galaxies worth of happiness you hold inside my heart.

If love was enough, a second would have been forever.

If love was enough, our life… we would be enough.

Yesterday was a time,

When your throne glowed,

Your glory itself bellowed,

Indestructible – you thought.

Time is forever a bandit,

Steals what you sought,

Robbed you of your home,

Now has left you here,

Unaccustomed to hope,

Unwavering to love,

Always a warrior,

Winning in your loss.

If ever you forget,

The tender lips that drown yours,

The hunger in eyes calling yours,

The need to kneel before yours,

The taste of my blood in yours,

The glory in a stride like yours,

The desire to only be yours,

If you ever forget that,

Truth has shattered to dust,

Earth sings of only lust.

Death is a welcomed forever,

Memory – the forgotten saviour.
