“I am far away from giving up” – Nayana Nair

.

Some kinds of love are made of flesh,
that can be killed eventually
however long it must take.
Forever does not exist for everyone.
But all that exists only in the kingdom of decay,
all that refuses to leave this flesh
as the knife of time cuts deeper and deeper,
those stubborn ones who only tend
to the roots of hopeless dreams
it was probably them, who thought up this scheme
of wanting a thing like this.
This fragile cloud of “forever” that will rain any day
and yet will rise from our tears and fill our skies again.
I am sad to say I am too weak to stray away from those skies.
I am yet to learn how to sever
the wants of my gods from my flesh.

    Love is not always a blanket of happiness. It is surrounded by drawbacks that causes pain in the heart. The important thing is to overcome the stones along the way and start over. Hope is the last thing to be lost. Excellent poem. I really liked your reflection. Happy weekend.
