Death Can't Do Us Apart

Just another poem that strikes my head suddenly...

I. Memories


the manor we promised each other

built with a colossal pool

a huge lounge

a wide bed

Just you

cuddling my feeble body

through health and sickness

Just me

holding your strong hands

through joy and misery


the places we planned to go

Paris, London

Rome and Switzerland

Just you

kissing my lips

in the snow

Just me

stuffing croissants

in your mouth


the days we had spent

Happy times

Terrifying moments

Just you

letting me to win

in Monopoly again

Just me

clutching your palm so tightly

when thunder strikes the Earth

for the twentieth time

II Reality


no one can foresee

brisk and dynamic

were you yesterday

dead and motionless

are you today

I can't see you

when I'm awake



is all I see

I see a pool of blood

this is all

that destroys

our faithful promises

our impossible dreams

our daring hopes

our fond memories


Obliterated, gone

it happened so quickly

it caught me off guard

I learnt

that screaming at the desolate chamber

and crying alone at the corner

will do me nothing

but more tears and pain

III Succumbed

Your laughter

still echoes in the room

Your scent

still lingers on the bed

Your face

still carved in my mind

Your love

forever kept in my heart

Struggling to see

for you are my sight

Gasping for air

for you are the essence of my life

Barely hanging on

for you are my vital organ

my other half

When your soul was gone

so went my spirits

Only your breath

your love

can revive me

I will love you for eternity

for death can never do us apart
