Afflicted

The incongruity between your words and action do not surprise her. After all you owe your allegiance to your inner demons. But she aches to comprehend her inability to stand by her own convictions. Seems, your false allure has blinded her irrevocably.

———————————————————————————————————————————————————————-

 

Love- served cold

 

His warm, impassioned bear hug

moves her not

cold, indifferent

she plucks

at his grasping arms.

 

Her alabaster beauty is to behold

but her icy heart is already sold

no passion can enfold

her growing love for gold-

her eyes have that faraway look

lofty dreams

her beacon.

 

Beseechingly,

he calls her name

a plea in his upturned eyes

black pools of emptiness

meet his gaze-

his aching heart

shattering

in a meteor

of pain.

 

He knows not what his life will be

loneliness was not his

chosen destiny-

love unrequited,

a broken heart

he moans for that

which never was!
