Azma Lahji :
You have my heart
You keep it safe,
And in your pocket
It will stay
I ask, “Protect it?”
You say, “With my life"
And now I know
But a tear still falls
To the ground
And you tilt my chin up
With a frown...
You hug me close
I hold on tight
I’m scared to death
Of you going to fight.
You pull away
And climb up high
Whispering a very sad
“I love you, goodbye.”
I nod and wave
As the wind plays with my hair
That this isn’t fair.
You turn and gallop
Into the Sun
“I love you!” I scream
At the top of my lungs.
Knowing you heard me
I sit on the ground.
I stare at the sky
And cry out loud.
My knight was gone
Leaving his princess alone
Wanting her knight
To be at home.
The only possession princess had was 'love'
But her prayers refelcted from the sky above;
she waited for years for the knight to return
but it was like expecting ashes to earn.
"time heals" as it is said,
her wounds scarred as time fled
One day,she saw an unbelievable sight,
The knight on a horseback, came to light
Her breath seemed to stop,
And her heart raced
As the knight approached closer,
As the horse paced.
She expected something to ignite within
A sweet pain,a feel of new skin;
She searched her heart to find what went wrong
As she couldn't find any bell that rung.
Surprising and shocking as it came to her,
instead of being happy,all she felt was numb.
He spoke of her love,of his wrongs and its harms,
but nothing helped,neither the warmth of his arms.
And as it was getting dark and difficult to see,
She got up and said with a sigh,
"I thought my love was boundless as sea,
But it died and so.... Goodbye"
