"Never Let Me Go"; "Never Will I" - A Poem on Lost Love

Never let me go
Never let me go | Source

"Never let me go" she begged

"Never will I" he promised, reassured

On souls that have departed

And that still existed


Patiently she waited

Heart filled with hopes and trust

Building dreams

For life together eternal

And happiness ever after


"Will be back in a fortnight" he assured

For I have a commitment to fulfill

"Come back soon my love" she whispered

For days will seem like years

Without you by my side


She hoped and prayed and waited

Patiently With hopes

Built on promises he made

A fortnight passed, a month passed

She waited and waited


Cried in pain but still in hope

Wrote to him but in vain

Days turned into weeks

And weeks into Months

But nothing heard

Lost love
Lost love | Source


And he sends her a note

One fine day

“I have no choice, But to let you go" it read

She hears from friends of his

His lies, his games, his pre-planned tricks


She screamed in pain, in heart ache, in fear

Wetting her pillows day and night

Although the waiting was over

In a way least expected

Love turned into anger

And into hate it seemed


No it wasn't true

For she could not let go

That feeling she had for him

Deep inside her little heart

A beautiful feeling called "Love"

P.S: This is my first attempt in writing a poem, that has exceeded 5 lines. I would sincerely appreciate any honest feedback and advice please.

Hello Vinaya, I hope you are referring to the science fiction movie. I did watch that movie too and was kind of scared about that unusual school what the children were brought up and used for. I am glad you liked the poem. Thank you. Have a great weekend!

Emotion in true color but so nicely and spontaneously expressed and quite maintained beyond "five lines". Thank you for sharing this one. Votes up and interesting . I am sharing it too.

A very beautiful poem, although you write it for the first time.

Hi, I see this is a first long poem for you. I loved the first 5 verses they are telling a story. The finishing verses were full of the passions of anger. Enjoyed the read and the style. Voted up,

Jan
