Poetic Journey in Personal Discovery

Futility…

image

With urgency, gathering all her strength,
Time progressing in obedience.
She tries to suspend the moment forever,
He’s leaving soon, risking life for defense.

The thought of losing him is torment.
To breathe she needs his love, his heart.
Sharing a singular beat, they’re united as one,
She has to ensure he doesn’t depart.

So she holds tight the the chains she lassoed time with,
As shards of active moments escape.
Knowing within, the efforts are futile,
Tomorrow will come; there will be a new day.

Yet she holds on till hands bleed, and chains empty,
Tears flowing from her darkened skies.
Weak from fighting a battle she couldn’t win,
In powerless despair she now prepares, to say her goodbyes.

  1. Very good and the lassoed time bit was great.

  2. Loved this… My favourite line : Weak from fighting a battle she couldn’t win… “and against adversaries he created for her”, leaped from my thoughts and experience on a similar theme.

  3. Love this piece E. Emotional and vivid. Chains and time…..Hmmmmmmm
    LOL. Seriously good write.
