Theme: Anguish

You Are Gone

You are gone.
Long unending dark night
Like swelling volcanic flow of tar
Fills every corner of heart 
And burns.

A cinder is kindled in me,
What is love?
Is it the fire that pulls two bodies
To engulf them,
Where skin to sink in skin
For nectar, 
That lasts for moments
And the thirst
Till it lasts?
Or the connection of hearts,
A lingering sweetness,
That shines like pearls 
Seldom lost
In the deep ocean of life?
Or is it a journey 
That leads one to another? 
The moon and the stars
From lighting up the stage
How they turn into lifeless existence!
You are gone.
My misty eyes watch
Fireflies in breathless night 
Float like ember -
My smoldering pain.
