there’s a certain sadness
in her eyes
that words cannot express
a love that’s lost
she is torn
the trust is broken
one huge mistake
the rush to label him as her love
to quench the thirst
of her soul
choices are everywhere
but she doesn’t think
and hides behind a drink
oh! this love so
how naive she was!
the tokens of love tormenting her
the treasures once cherished
now a burden
and a ring
tears well up as memories darken
that’s locked up deep within
and not yet being
gasping for air
every day she walks alone
time might heal
is her only hope!

Ah! The pain of love!! It will go away but it takes time.
Good one for the prompt, Shalini!!
You captured the passion of a fiery love so well. Thank you for sharing. I am participating in the #Fesrivalofwords too but, since I am on the other side of the globe, my post will go live much later than most participants. Cheers!

Can treasure turn out to be a pain…never had thought of it… But this poem awakened me to the fact that the treasure at times may show up its dark side as well!
