The Warrior Spirit

The first time when he touched her,
He claimed her soul to his breath,
She decided for his heart to be her home,
And together they vowed to never give it up,
Then one day, he took away her tomorrow,
Blended her boundless love with unlimited sorrow,
Since then, she had only known her shadow,
To be her ally in the darkness alone,
For every night when he was away,
She chose to drown in his memory,
Every morning when she woke up to an empty life,
She chose to deny the truth,
So she could surrender to the endless pain,
That pierced through her self-esteem,
Whenever she tried to say goodbye,
To the world they created together,
While he had left her behind to savor their doom,
She played with the broken pieces,
Of her withering and flickering heart,
So she could fool it just one last time,
With the hope that he will return,
And claim her to himself all over again,
But until then, she would survive the pain,
With a smile on her face,
And the warrior-spirited woman she is,
So don’t be late this time, she would be waiting.

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

    Just brilliant, these lines. The rest of the poem is good.. but these four lines are pure spunk. Keep it up!

  2. I like this but my favorite part is the “you and I” statement at the end. Cheers

  3. Beautiful, Naima. I liked the quote, well, that is the reality we often deny 🙂

    It happens to us all…. that lingering moment of denial….. of trying to conjure hope out of the elements. But the sooner we let go of the pain the sooner we start building strength for tomorrows battles. Which waits for no sorrows from yesterday. Lovely poem

    • Indeed. Why carry the burden of the sorrows from yesterday when there is no happiness to balance it off?
      May be then one day you move on in a happy land only to invite sorrows again so you could be stronger with each passing day. May be..

      Thank you Francois for your comment and input. It’s greatly appreciated.

    It truly is sheer brilliance, Naima. With each piece you keep outdoing the previous one. Lots of love ❤

    In cases of the heart at times, I think the best way out is to not hate and to not hope! Hope seems hopeless after a certain point, causing more pain each day. The pain of yet another day of broken expectations.

  7. Sometimes this wait never ends but still one should carry that warrior spirit just for that last ray of hope.!

    Painful but so beautiful, sometimes the wait never ends sigh
