The Immortal Detachment

As night fell, you walked out...
Never returned home and left me with my solitude
I waited for you endlessly, thought I'd be happy after all!!
Both of you failed me yet again..and slit my tears..

A pretty picture it was of you,I and you..
I see it once again, blank spaces fill your faces...
Family's just a's lost its shadows...
Whom did you fool behind those closed doors??

My stark memory is reminiscent of a broken home...
Fragile heart pieces and tormenting screams...
My vision is blurred by immortal goodbyes
Who are we?? After all, mere humans...

Marriages are made in Heaven...
Which bullshit is that?? If it was so,
I wouldn't be writing my shattered life here!!
I wouldn't be singing out my wilderness...

If there is You, then there is me too..
Accepting seclusion was never so painful..
But you know, it doesn't hurt anymore..
Coz I've always felt the same way...


  1. "If there is 'You', then there is me too.."

    Are you talking about God in this poem??

  2. No...its not about God..
    its about separated parents

    "If there is You, then there is me too..Accepting seclusion was never so painful..But you know, it doesn't hurt anymore..
    Coz I've always felt the same way... "

    "Every ending is a new beginning."

    I have, personally, always liked this quote, because it has always been true. :)

  9. @ Vinisha
    Yeah..ur right but u know its difficult to keep on telling urself that when the end doesn't seem to be a new beginning..
    but I still have my hopes and they'll get me through..i'm sure!!
