Untangling this tangled mess.

Everything will fall into place.

The wounds will be healed; the tears will be dried,

Silence will reign, always.

*

Run, run, run…

Maybe one day we'll be done.

Memories will dissipate from dreams.

We'll shatter into two from one…

*

Broken, yet unbroken…

Silent, unspoken…

Teardrops dripping down lips curved upwards.

Feelings have woken…

*

The sky will be blue,

Grass will shine with a drop of dew.

My eyes will look up into the heavens.

My soul searching to find you.

*

My room will echo

With your voice from long ago.

Hallucinations casting your shadow everywhere.

My emptiness will start to show.

*

The only reply

I will hear is the sound of my own cry

As I shatter the mirror which used to be ours

Before life decided that you had to die.

*

My arms will learn to long,

I will learn to be strong.

Because you won't be here to wipe my tears and hold my hand,

Now that everything has gone wrong.

*

Sometimes I will forget

That we lost to our fate.

Sometimes I will wake up and turn to my side to search for your face.

Only to realize that I'm too late.

*

Sometimes I will pretend

That it didn't all end.

Sometimes I will watch that movie you liked and picture your smile

As I put my heart on mend.

*

Sometimes I will stare at your photo,

And in my heart I will know

That wherever you are, whoever you are, you're holding on,

You'll never let go.

*

As I gnaw on your favorite pickle,

The gentle breeze will tickle,

And I will feel your presence by my side; my heart will grow weak,

I will cry, I will fail.

*

Sometimes in a pocket of my coat,

I will find a random note

Written long back to remind me of the laundry I was supposed to do.

My eyes will devour every word you wrote.

*

Sometimes while mopping the floor,

I will pause at the door,

When I will spot one of the buttons that once got ripped from your favorite shirt.

I can't hold it in anymore.

*

Sometimes while reading a book,

I will find in a crook

A scribble in your hand-writing about some appointment,

My eyes will look and look.

*

Sometimes while standing in the balcony,

My heart singing a tune of melancholy,

Your face will flash in my mind, and our lives will unfold like a movie on loop,

I will close my eyes to darkness, feeling lonely.

*

Days will pass.

Nothing will separate us.

Death is after all just the end of the physical entity.

The feelings will continue to rush.

*

And maybe one day,

When I have too much to say,

The dark veil of unconsciousness will pull me in its grasp.

In death my life will find its way.

*

Right now, we end this game.

From now on, I will blame

Myself for everything.

Without you, nothing will ever be the same…

*

Untangling this tangled mess.

Everything will fall into place.

The wounds will be healed; the tears will be dried,

Silence will reign, always….


A/N: I am fortunate I never had to lose anyone this important in my life. I have never felt this way; this poem was just born out of my thoughts. Reviews are much appreciated so that I can know how I did.
