The calm before the storm

With my hand in your hand, for our promise land, those promises were kept.
Over the courses of our lives, I was getting low, you were getting high, one fine day, you simply left.

So here I am, I feel you, I feel your pain. I shall remember you and your name.
I see you leaving. I am not moving, I am staying with the blame.

But I, I wont stop you. You shall be gone, gone without remorse.
I don’t care if it’s getting worse.
See the calm before the storm, safely harbor, I am on my own, 

When it’s all done, and if I’m not dead, I’ll lay here dying, painful and so slow.
And then, would you end it for me, with the sharpest arrow from your quiver, that is all I want to know.

  1. Aw this is sad but hopeful. It’s hard to let go of someone you really love even though you don’t want to. Sigh. Anyway, this is very well written, as always, you’ve touched my heart again with those powerful words. Well done, Ankit 😊

    1. Graci, you aren’t to blame for this sad post. It was my situation and the song. But the one you wrote, it had so much on me. I felt that voice and that scenario building. 🙂
      Words, they can have so much influence, Its the power of words.

  3. Oh God! You took me on such a journey. My heart broke and although Your words are beautiful and strong it felt so trite to click “like”. Because if You were sincerely in that much pain, I don’t applaud that You’re hurting! I did anyway, and then scrolled down to send some love and had a blast reading the comments. Whew!!! Okay. Well done, lovely and Cheers!!! 💖🤗

    1. Oh wow I’m humbled by such kind words of yours. Thank you so much for that. Thank you for seeing it that way. And I totally get you there. But that is how it works right abt the applauding thing, you could take it as an art. I am glad I was able to take you a trip hehe.

      1. You know, the same thing happens to me. I’ll do a painting and someone will see it and have a very different, much more intense interpretation of what it means. I just smile. Art is amazing. Cheers!!! 🙂


  4. Hi Ankit, you have a wonderful blog 😊 I have nominated it for the Liebster Award but I’m sorry I am unable to post the link containing details, due to technical issues; so do check it in my blog under “Liebster Award”. Congratulations😊😊

  5. Very powerful words….reflects your pain and I can see where those words are coming from….I hope you are feeling better……life only gets better you know, it’s just a phase that will get over and only the beautiful memories will remain (don’t want to sound like giving too much ‘gyan’ but that’s what I truly feel)

    1. I appreciate your concerns. Thank you. I am feeling better. Actually I don’t even have this feeling anymore.. I have been on this spot many times. The only thing is I never learned to avoid it. 🙂
      I appreciate you taking the time to go through my contents. Thank you for that. 🙂
