The rift

I am trying to tell a story of regret of a broken relationship.

 

 

The rift

 

What happened did we drift apart

Our love is scattered with a broken heart

how did it arise when did it change

our tokens of love now are estranged

did we stop trying Has our love died

when did our closeness become untied

I stare at a stranger where a soul mate once stood

a betrayal realised painted in blood

we stand close together but no words are said

I try to reach out but you turn your head

we crafted a nest waiting to be broken

words are no longer a sentiment to be spoken

desperately uttered “I love you” in vain

no return no feelings just a myriad of pain

betrayal wasn't an idea

it was never meant to be

I was just reaching out in denial my twisted fantasy

lusting aster a shadow cast by false light

my actions bereft of thought

my mind overrode tantalised by sight

so now we drift apart swept away with torment

I face a lifetime of what if'an odyssey of loneliness for which I repent
