An Unwanted Rhyme

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

All I am, is with your heart,
and love bound me to you alone,
so how can I remove myself,
when we are one and no line can be drawn
for us to part?

Once melded, two souls cannot be parted,
for flesh and bone would bleed,
and crush two hearts that beat as one,
how could either ever leave,
ever be alone?

These words fall on unaccustomed ears,
these sounds so foreign, such affront,
they howl like winter blizzards rage
and burn my ears, so chilled of their intent,
I cannot sate.

Surely you find a blank dull mind,
a spill of words outrageous, a tempered blade,
that you could remove this lasting love,
and disrespect with sharp tirade
an ending never meant.

I feel my heart now splitting,
for it was sealed by you,
and now you pull away from all that’s been,
to seek a lapse, a sense of unfulfilled,
and leave all you have ever known.

I am no more, and you are gone,
yet I wish you well, for all that we have sewn,
and I know I will prevail,
and scars will heal in time,
but I will never understand this rhyme.

    I often wondered over the years how a love once so strong could just be dropped, like a whim. I could never understand. Very well expressed rhyme, Tony.

    Tony, I understand the rhyme, but not how melded souls can part. Well expressed.

    I do understand how something can be so special, so alive that we could never believe it could end, yet it does. Very heartbreaking and you captured it well.

    Thanks Jackie, yes life seldom holds up under our most perfect ideals; that is what it is to be human, we are imperfect. Glad you enjoyed it. Cheers!
