I wish you could ever realize.......

I wish  you could ever realize
How it felt  when you said,
You didn't love me anymore.
It was as if thousands of arrows pierced my chest,
And my heart broke the way a mirror would,
When dashed  to the ground .
The world appeared to enter
The abysmal absence of light and vitality.

I wish you could ever know,
How I, staring at the ceiling, kept awake,
night after night, thinking of you
Even long after you had gone away .

I wish you could ever know,
How I , burying my head into the side pillow,
kept sobbing through the night,
Thinking about you.

I wish you could ever know
How you, when I fell asleep,
Appeared in my dreams,
Only to scold me for loving you.

Tears roll down my cheeks
As I remember how we sat in the garden,
hand in hand, silent.
Amidst the chirping of birds,
Frequent shouting of children,
And humming of casual visitors around,
We were lost in our mute colloquy,
As silence became more vocal than speech.

I wish you could ever realize
How much this silence made me feel complete,
With the feeling of togetherness !
And how much I wished time to stop there,
Till eternity.

I wish you could ever realize
A broken heart never causes death,
It makes life far worse;
As it converts life into the ugliest nightmare,
The every millisecond of which
One has to live,
Wide awake,
In extreme agony and ache.

  2. Hi Samrat - Thanks for the friend invitation, which I just accepted - and the vote. This poem is just wonderful - I've been hurt just like you described and pain and emotional agony was also just like you described. I think in order to write this convincingly like this, you have to be emotional. Even if the event didn't happen personally to you (and it seems this probably did) you can imagine the feeling you're writing about - like a great actor. You HAVE to be emotional to do that. Looking forward to reading more. Have a good day Samrat. :)

  5. Thank you so much for your valuable comment. While appreciating your comment, I must say that, while writing about love, I have a tendency to write about the sad part of it.I am not pessimistic though. Each and every writer or poet has this tendency to write about a particular aspect of emotions. The reason is unknown. Hence, you are entirely mistaken if you think this poem to be my personal experience.

    The every millisecond of which
    One has to live,
    Wide awake,.... I can relate to it ... and truly heart ache is truly painful and misery...
    In extreme agony and ache.
