You realize the value of a thing or a person only in their absence.

This one is very simple and....crazy.

Staying with you was always better than walking away

But that's not what I thought when I left that day;

Stood closer to you as I watched you sway

For the last time as the hear the music play;

But you're the only melody that kept piercing through my mind

a memory so pristine that I wish I could rewind;

A ray of love so bright it shone

And now I lie in my room all alone;

Because staying with you was always better than walking away

But I didn't know that when I left that day;

And for the last time we didn't know that it was the last time

a love envied by the people of all times and climes;

The last kiss, the last touch

never knew it could mean so much;

The day breaks but within me it's still night

the dying flame of hope only you could ignite;

And the world around me is in a dark hue

But darling, all I wish is that I was with you.

I like how you wrote we know the value of a person in their absence. I agree. I think sometimes people take certain people for granted. Perhaps assuming they will always be there. I also like staying with you is better than walking away. Sometimes people wonder that when they are thinking about leaving someone. You tied this together with a wonderful flow. I enjoyed it.

And I enjoy reading your comments on my works. Haha, seriously, though. It is true that the real value of a person is known only when they get away or they leave you. That's what I wanted to potray through this and also the fact that one never knows when it is your last time, unless it is some business sort of thing. XD but thank you soooo much, Lisa. Glad you liked it. :) x

Babe, are you like crazy or something? I swear you and Bhavya have the same problem; you guys underestimate yourself toooooo damn much....
I mean that was like..... I don't even have words to praise this peice of poetry. Not coz its bad or something but coz its EXQUISITE.
Stop underestimating yourself....
Coz this is was awesome. Awesomely awesome. And and and, the rhyme.... You really worked hard on it I guess xD
As for the words... They just wove their magic over me and now I'm dazed.
Also, I won't ever be annoyed on you for leaving reading requests. Your poems; they make my day. I would be super happy if you leave me requests you know.

Eeeep, thank you so much, Natalaya. YES, I worked real hard on the rhyme, especially the night and ignite thingy. XD And trust me, even if you'd have said that my reading requests annoy you, I'd still leave one bc your comments make my day. :)
And I won't underestimate myself ever again. Thank youuu. X

:-) :-) starting with smiles first... Yho really should make da audio version of this for real don't worry ammo be yur marketer coz is going to SO SELL, that yho gon be 'made' just from making one track... But seriously yho should try making an audio version of this if yur having instrumental troubles just drop descriptions of da type yho want and ammo upload it here... Nice rhymes though... this was so meaningful... SOC (*screaming out crazily*) I LOVE IT... Uhnmm... I wonder what's up with you guys always rejecting complements (Bhavya, Nat and you)... Never decline complements and 'complementer' knows why he or she aligned that complement at cha, so be a good girl and stop declining complements. Thanks for being so awesome, stay awesome!

Haha, sure. Perhaps, you can help me with the music and I can sing the songs and you can add some cool rap. XD we'll rock it, I swear. And this time I won't decline your awesome compliment as you've already warned me not to, I'll try to get used to it. XD So THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THIS AWESOME REVIEW AND FOR BEING SO AWESOME. :D x

Thank you so much and do not put up with things that you don't want to. Maybe you'll find someone better or maybe you both just need to work things out. I hope the best for you. :)
