Death of a Love

(This poem shows how complicated a simple love can become. A simple poem composed of simple words since i am no fancy poet.)

My world was dark.
And my life was gloomy.
All the happiness and joy
Went right through me.

Then a light shone far away
A light of hope and happiness
Piercing the darkness
And riding towards me.

As the light halted
A few spaces from me
My eyes squinted
But I could clearly see.

The light was something else
Something non human
Something non worldly
The light was from the angels.

Among the angels all departed
But one stayed behind for me
She was magical, mystical.
The angel was itself beauty.

She showed me the world
She showed me life
She made me her world
She made me her life.

A day came for her to depart
Tears rushed down like rain
Oh the agony and oh the pain
You are the Beat of my heart!

If you leave what will happen to me
Are you going and letting me be?
I never knew angels could be heartless
If you leave my heart will be beat-less.

She replied: I have to leave.
An angel must not love a human.
I brought you hope and beauty.
And just fulfilled my duty.

You are my hope
You are my beauty
You are my life
Why such cruelty?

She left me.
My breath left me.
My soul left me.
My body lay lifeless.
