Dreamy Eyed

Dreamy Eyed

I asked if she would travel with me, down

The road where it forked

One leading to the unknown, the other

Her comfort zone

She took my hand and replied 'my place

Is by your side,

Whichever path that you choose, is where

My destiny lies'.


So we took the path unknown, the red carpet of

Autumn leaves blown

Crunch of heels on fallen leaves resounded

Throughout the valley

Estranged lovers meeting after years, dropping

Baggage of the past

Walking to a new beginning between aisle

Of trees, at last!


Fingers of fire rose from nowhere, smoke 

Curtain obscured my vision

Our hands separated, I called out to her

silence met in return

There she was lying in a bundle, beyond

Recognition, face blackened

From the burst of fire that happened when

Her foot stepped on landmine hidden


Shattered, I picked up her remains, buried

Them, in a safe place

There was no turning back for me, love

Lost, regained, lost again.

This path we had chosen to move on, now

Appeared as a bed of thorns

Once more life threw a curve ball

I'm back to walking alone
