When you are GONE

When you are gone, i know not life
Doomed to remain your unwed wife
The magic that you once invoked
The nightmares change the dreams you showed---
       Like a raw nerve sliced by a knife.

The zeal for life just got erased
Moment you stepped into the blaze
Sealed with your thoughts, am all alone--
       When you are gone...

The full moon lits the path unknown
To the place where we both belong
Together beyond life and death
I am coming....just keep the faith
The deathly waves carry me on---
         When you are gone....
