19 Dec

Like the first ray of sunshine ushering in the day,

You brightened my life.

For a moment,

Life was a breeze.


Our kisses, flowers of love in full bloom,

Conversations laced with beautiful pearls of wisdom,

Plans laid with the strongest foundation,

We had it going.



The storm hit our perfect little boat.

Your first instinct,

Jump ship.


I rallied,

Dragged you in,

Afraid the waters might drown me,

On board, you came, but halfheartedly.


Beginning of the end,

It turned out to be.

Our issues, longer than the Nile,

Showed their face every day.


In the end,

Our love was a cancer.

Our breakup,

Much needed chemotherapy.

    Lovely piece. Sad story I’d say. Never a happy ending.
