Goodbye
 
Goodbyes would exist not
Between us, Love,
As,
Our souls have been moulded
For each other
Shaped to complete each other!
 
But then,
The wall that you have built
Between us
The wall upon which
You keep having me thrust myself
As if
You merely wish to see me
Hurt myself
Till I shall decide to move away,
Is made of clouds!
 
Yes,
Clouds which shall melt
And flow,
As torrential downpours
Over our bodies
As we shall burn,
And consume of our connection
With enough passion
As to cause the Gods to blush,
And to gulp while trying to hide their joy!
 
Should you wish to see me move away
Know that I will do so
By choosing Death
And its stillness
As nothing shall give me my peace
Other than my place in your beating heart
As a crimson rose,
A sole one,
A unique one,
Which you shall heal and bloom
Into exquisiteness!
 
Pray,
If you fear the mystical side of our existence,
Be calmed,
It is not the typhoon abashing upon us
It is, rather,
The lifeboat
Sent from the skies
To save us!
 
Without it,
We would be as futile
As are ants
On a living room table!
 
Why,
Mind me,
Love me,
The skies wish it be so
And,
God’s wish
Need be always be treated
As divine orders!
