This is a piece of poetry which is all about distress, pain and sorrows. Its about the hard times we face when we loose someone close to our hearts. Hope you like it.


On the shores

I crumbled the white sand as I slouched along the shore
With the doleful wind and waves of a wailing sea
I had relinquished the gusto and happiness I once bore
When moments of joy turned into a painful memory

The chirping of the birds was a solace to my heart
Pessimistic that bliss would fly back to me
My despair and distress that had torn me apart
And surreptitiously took away my assuaging harmony

The affection I felt when you were there by my side
I never had thought that time would elapse that fast
The glee of having you seemed like a relishing pride
I never knew that your life would soon be a reminiscence of past

I tried to evade the thought of your departure
But it kept haunting me again and again
My tears and soaked eyes were a simple gesture,
That nonentity, but you can lessen my pain

I crumbled the white sand as I slouched along the shore
With the doleful wind and waves of a wailing sea
I have forgotten the zeal and zest I once bore
And, yet, I haven't learned to live without thee
