Since You Have been Gone

by Fiza Pathan

 

I’m not in my senses

The blood in my veins is drying up

The earth is turning around

Without giving me a second thought

Since you have been gone, things have all gone wrong.

 

The water from my skin pores emit cries in the form of tiny tear drops.

My vacant eyes chase the moorings of the fishing boats,

That pass to and fro obeying the tide.

Silence is my loudest cry of your betrayal, the love you would not give.

Since you have been gone, things have all gone wrong.

 

My lips are torn and blackened by pain.

Ruddy drops of blood ooze from my eyes to tickle down my chin.

A scar of regret has enveloped my face, an image of mockery to all mankind.

Pensive I close upon my panting sorrow, 

Tired from the several whippings my heart administers onto it.

Since you have been gone, things have all gone wrong.

 

I weep and wail but no tears come.

I wait and wander upon the sandy way of death.

Caress my eyes with your look just once,

Heal the open wound at the centre of my chest.

A leper have I become to my fellow men

You have the panacea to bring back my life anew.

Since you have been gone, things have all gone wrong.

 

Thorns of spite sprout from my neck.

With gnashing of teeth do I with agony address.

A red rose and a blue sky are my only witnesses,

That of your word they will testify true.

Below my neck do bloody scars I keep,

To sting my aching conscience to rest in peace.

 Since you have been gone, things have all gone wrong.

  1. ‘Silence is my loudest cry of your betrayal, the love you would not give’, this line seem not composed but comes out of a crying heart. Nice composition; touching too.
