Love is neither for me nor for you;
Lesson for everybody – comprehended by FEW.

My bed swallowed me in a gulp

Concealing the emotions within my heart’s pulp

Under the sheets, the rolling tears need a break

Otherwise there will be a flowing salty lake

Everything has turned to betray me except his thoughts

His memories slaughter me with the silent thrashing shots

I shut my eyes to embrace the mortal sleep

One thing more to deceive but his thoughts deep and deep

I strive to trail away from his thoughts for an instant

Defeated by an immense margin – my soul arrogant

Was the time spent with him an incredible reality or a worse nightmare?

I can sense his breathing pulse caressing my earlobe as if I still care

His splendid looks, miraculous personality, humble nature – my ultimate admiration

Was it an obsession or my admiration on biased foundation?

Was loving him intensely my substantial mistake?

Was this I deserve at the end of the day – melancholy, agony and heart ache?

The uprising question is: WHAT HE DID?

Struggled to get rid of me; leaving me to solve his remnant grid

The perception of the prince charming that enthralled me before

It lingers in my head – poison needed to seal the sore spore

He was my prince – THE ONE with whom I dreamt of walking down the aisle

The moments passed by in the shot of a bullet – I helplessly smile

The twinkle of his eye, the curve of his lips, his emphatic Adam’s apple

His vivid imagery accommodates the empty rooms of my brain as a gray-dapple

Things turned from bad to worse

Nothing left except to curse

Eventually my doom compelled my soul to give in

The devastated me doesn’t have any choice but to dump my feelings in the fatal bin

I turned pale, feeble and fragile

No more rosy cheeks; tears competent of the fast flowing Nile

Love is eternal regardless of what is cherry-picked

Love is morphine – an addiction for an addict

There is a message for you to know

Love is naïve yet a massive blow

Seek the lesson on your way

Trust broken once can’t be mended any day

Love unconditionally – no quest for the reward

Thirst for endeavor and adventure rings the heartily chord


Betrayal – Part I

Betrayal – Part II

Betrayal – Part III

About globalunison

Writing is my passion and that is what I do here on this blog. I write about everything, whether it be Nature, Love, Hate, Relationships, Humans, Personal Life (where I discuss lessons learnt through real-life experiences), Food, Philosophy (sometimes) and much more. I write in any form whether it be Prose or Poetry. I am in search of ‘Myself’, hence there is not much I can tell you about me. Perhaps, I have a very brilliant idea. Why don’t you come along with me on my journey? I will always care to share and you can also enjoy the ride. For now, this is it. I am ‘ME’ – a wanderer in search of a fulfilling life. Until next time, Love Living Life! I express my sincere gratitude to all my Readers! -Naima

    That was incredibly moving. From start to finish. Very sad.

  2. Trust broken once can’t be mended any day

    Love unconditionally –

    These two are so diametrically opposed that I could never do it despite my adherence to Christian faith and precepts of 12 Steps.

    • It is all the business of your naive heart – may be you can never do it (as you say) but you never know how many times unintentionally you have already been under the very same roof! [Smiling]
      Thank you for your comment though.

    Apologies for not being able to read up the series. It was intentional, to say the least. I am scared of things that get me in my thinking gloves of late. I can read anything and everything but not the emotional stuff- thats kind of like my middle-of-the-year resolution 🙂 Nothing against you but its just the thing I have to do for myself. Hope you understand… Keep writing !

  4. Naima!
    This was ineffably awesome.
    Perfect ending.

    Luckily I have an iPad and I can look for many words that I don’t recognize :). You are extremely good in command of vocabulary. I remember of there is a movie about an African American kid who have to compete in commanding the English vocabulary, and there is an intense amount of effort for the work. I love that movie, my apology that I can’t remember the name of the movie.

    I think it is a very good writing, and it must have taken you tremendous amount of time, and this is a great love you have for your Friend and a beautiful friendship :). There are some excellent quote in the poems too.

    Since you have devided the story into different parts, I guess it must have some turning point, and low, and the high emotional narration. May be in the beginning the good times together, then something happens, when heart is broken wheat are the thoughts, related to herself and her family, then the struggling to live on or to leave this world. well, the story don’t have to be arranged in this way, can be in many ways, but arrange in a way to give a turning point in some events.

    E.g. how good times turn to bad times, deciding to live on or not, what to hold on in future, and what is the change of the faith to love?

    Just my opinions :).

    Really enjoy your writing ❤

    • Firstly, mighty thank you for breaking the record every time with your lengthiest comments from time to time. My Vocabulary – i think it is kinda dying to get an opportunity for a showcase when I am in a “Poet’s Zone” [lol] Jokes apart, I am not able to utilize words when I am writing prose so I think its the magic of poetry.

      Anyway, I was actually stunned that you mentioned my poem had excellent quotes. I read that line over and over again to ensure if I am reading correctly. Thank you for reading it with a concern to appreciate me as well as provide me with advises wherever needed!

      To be honest, whenever you try to come up with suggestions – that’s my favorite port of your comment; to see how you would have wanted to see the things and how you have perceived my work and how do you choose to see an improvement. Your opinions always encourage me to do better – you are like a mentor to me!

      With much love and gratitude,
