Love In Death.

Love In Death.

A Poem by Simran Kewlani
"

People DO seek comfort speaking to the dead.

"
Her happiness was tainted,
Tainted with a deep black,
It's scars once engraved,
Stayed there forever as a reminder.

She sat by the long stone block,
Mumbling to herself,
Tears cascading down her cheeks,
Inaudible whimpers escaping her lips.

"Things were so different", she whispered to herself,
The wind picked up it's speed,
An involuntary shiver ran down her spine,
She looked up at the sky and smiled.

"I wish you were here", she whispered yet again looking at the stone block,
She read the name smiled a teary smile,
"A loving son, friend and boyfriend", it read,
Love caused pain yet again instead of conquering all.

Hey guys! It's been a while since I uploaded any of my writings. I'm really sorry about that, I was caught up with college and exams and what not. So here is one of my personal favourites I wrote more than a month ago.
Y'all know the drill, criticize if you must.
I'll be uploading another one soon.

very interesting where the thought goes ... surviving pain (i think) is one of the strongest lessons to learn in life ... not to become jaded is key :) happiness tainted she carries that doubt ... i like this a lot! easy reading with distinct images for me ... i agree with your note ..speaking to those gone before us can be healing and very positive ... to a point of course ;)

True and powerful words.

My grandmother talks of men who never returned home from WW2. Broke her heart and made her smile. Love make us laugh and can make us cry. Thank you dear Poet for sharing the excellent poetry.

that's funny I thought I left a review on this

this reads like it could be the opening of a novel - one is able to fall easily within the words and wish to know more

the ending is a bit cliche but I am willing to let that slide

Happy New Year chick - hope all is well in your study filled world X
