Loss (Dec 1998)

I thought you were gone forever,

I had hoped that I had moved on

To a better life, a brighter tomorrow;

Instead, I have allowed myself to be sucked

Deeper into this abyss of loneliness.

It was never meant to be – our love;

No, not that I didn’t love you enough

No, not that you didn’t love me enough

Some things are just not meant to be

Too brittle to survive scorn and jealousy.

There is a reason why farewells were bid

One day we will know why.

I wish I could cry for you, for me

The lost souls and broken hearts

But tears come not, only an emptiness that engulfs.

I wish I could have seen it coming

But then, I never thought I’d lose you

Together forever was how I thought it’ll be

Alas, Fate thought otherwise.

And now, I have learnt that nothing lasts forever.

Every morning I wake up hoping to forget you

Every night I go to sleep hoping to find you again

But in this world of cheats and liars, who knows?

Now I’m left repeating my woes endlessly

To those who do not care.

How do I break free of these bonds of hopelessness?

Dare I hope to find someone as special as you, again ?

Will it be easier to remain closed up to the world

Wrapped tightly in this blanket of ennui?

Or shall I exchange this illusion of security for another?
