Regret and the grave

Frozen in disbelief, embracing waves of despair. I try to reach, through this breach. I whine, I complain.
An Impossible balance. I have to maintain. While you write me off with such disdain.

I try to adjust, my efforts to move. I struggle, I fall, and then I break.
To no avail, my attempts fail. Then I realize it’s been so long, I’ve been so wrong. I’ve been carrying it around my neck.

Unlearn my love, erase those memories, delete those photos, block my path, remove me from my track.
Bury me with your riches, rebuild those bridges. I am never coming back

Of hopes & February, our concealing fate, this stinking mess, you did not create,Β Β 
For this impatient wait, the day is done, the sun has set. Your moon now dead. You’ll shiver in cold I’ll die in regret.

  3. I don’t know why, but the depths of each words haunt me as if those words come from me. I can absolutely feel the warmth of your emotions wrapped in this piece. You are truly one of the best poets I’ve seen so far! I super love this!

    1. Idk how do I thank you here. Im really happy you were able to establish a connection there. To me it is not about being the best. It is all about reaching and connecting my readers.

      Thank you for this wonderful comment Rae.


    1. You are a writer yourself so you should know that. This is how we deal with our situations. We do have that in common.
      Thank you Tapasi, Im glad you could relate to it, but again I feel bad that was relatable. Im sorry to learn that you are going through it 😦


      1. Im aware of the benefits. It keeps fueling me. πŸ™‚
        I was writing abt it.

        Could you please give me the link to your poem, the one which inspired me. I think I’ll be needing it. I was on your blog some weeks ago but I was unable to locate it.


      2. I dont know the title, lemme try that again. It was about you not feeling a thing for your relation that didn’t go well. You had decorated your stanzas with somekinda borders. I dont now the specific date, you had it up there before your exam. πŸ™‚


  4. I had read this before but read it once again. It brings out the depth of your feelings very strongly….and this last sentence hits it hard “You’ll shiver in cold I’ll die in regret.”

  5. Hmm…understand its painful, though I probably can’t feel the depth of your pain as only you know what you must be going through….. but just try to let go, it’ll not happen in one day, but keep practicing….(again some unsolicited advice, hope you won’t mind)

  6. Once again so much depth and so much feelings! Each of your poems just straight out touches the heart, pierces the heart, I’d rather say.
    You’ll shiver in cold I’ll die in regret – really amazed at how these words just come to you. I think I know how it does though….

    1. Hey Neel, this is an old one. The line you quoted, unfortunately is the poetic representation of the my current situation. Such things comes just like that when you’re going through something like in the poem. Thank you for visiting again.

      1. Absolutely. When I saw this posted again I was reminded You are still cycling through so much grief. I’d not thought for a while about all You’ve gone through in recent months. I’m glad You are fine. ❀️
