Shahla Latifi

Empty of Love

 

 I am afraid one day

When the time is perfectly still

When your heart is empty of love

When you are the saddest of beings

You will agonize me

 

Swiftly in your imagination

True in your heart

Without exploding in anger

The star of my memories will escape your heart

 

Alone

Every second

Then and tomorrow

You’ll close your tired eyes

With the memories of your heart touching mine

 

 

I’m afraid one day

On a gloomy fall evening

Or in the light of a spring day

In the midst of a summer night

Or on a cold winter Sunday

Your wishful heart will hear the news of me passing

 

Suddenly,

Your lips still sealed

Your heart full of secrets,

Undoubtedly

With no stop,

With traces of my voice in your ears,

With the moon of my presence in your window,

You will cry yourself into a very deep sleep

  • dusk arising

    A very moving piece from you. Is this the sadness held deep within one in a loveless relationship.

    Beautifully written.

      Relationships end, but memories and regrets last forever.
      Thank you for the lovely comment.

      This is well writtrn but very sad..be careful about manifesting things by vocalizing. Or writing them beforehand..never worry about passing or what it may do to another..people need to get over themselvess when others pass on..it is a celebration time not a.sorrow ...it means we have come to end of a very difficult journey and that we now have the opportunity to ascend to a higjer frequency and thus have a better existence.energy never dies..it just changes form...nice work
