A sentence without meaning
An existence without life.
Claiming rights instead of embracing love
A union of the disunited
This is what our love has become.

The songs have died down
The romance has dried up
Time away from you I cherish
Time away from me you honor.

I have become an alien to you
You became a stranger to me
Cupid shot an arrow
Cupid has withdrawn his arrow.

What is left is
Delusions of love without trust
Affirmations of love without heart
Romance without dreams
Paradise lost has become paradise extinct.

I can’t water what is dead with my blood
I can’t kill what is living for the dead
So this morning
Like a bird let out of the cage
I have let you go.

Farewell my love
Go to the land of your desires

Whilst I recover from the aborted hope you became
You won’t be anonymous for long
Tears, sorrows, broken hearts are your trademark.

Notting like our love ones,
A saying goes “you don’t appreciate what you have until you lose it”. Thank you daddy for this one .

    You are right. Thanks for commenting. We become busy pursuing the irrelevant whilst loosing those who are important in our lives.

“Go to the land of your desires” indeed!
Nothing compares to a genuine love

    Ovyay · September 29, 2018 at 10:11 am

    Yes o my beloved. It can be hurting, but better to let them go than to water what is dead and uncaring with your blood.

Very thoughtful but takes my mind back to memories that I would love to bury forever but I’ve learnt by the things that I have been through never to take someone I love for granted. Nice piece sir

    Good move Reuben. We are all learners. No one is an expert of life.

Reminds me of “Johnny Walker” of our time. 🤣🤣
