A Great Tragedy (Dectina Refrain)

 

A Great Tragedy

My
soul died
My tears dried
words unspoken
Of yet one great love
My heart cries my soul bleeds
Of yet another true love
Never really was meant to be
A great tragedy, of greatest love
My soul died, my tears dried, words unspoken.

P.S.

This one goes out to the lovely couple seated next to me on a plane. I wrote this with the hope that the universe will come together and give them peace of heart and mind as they embark on their lives separately.

P.S.S

In response to 10-line Poem Challenge #19: Dectina Refrain.

Dectina Refrain

The Dectina Refrain looks exactly like an Etheree, but with one distinguishing characteristic, as we shall see. This form was created by Marion Friedenthal and named by Luke Prater.

Like the Etheree, it is a decastitch (10-line stanza) with an emphasis on the syllabic count of each line.Also like the Etheree, the syllabic count ascends: 1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-9-10Like the Etheree, it is unrhymed.Line 10 is the distinguishing feature between the Etheree and the Dectina Refrain. In the latter form, line 10 is comprised of lines 1-4 all together and sometimes enclosed in quotation marks. Hence, the refrain.

Star -Crossed Love (inverted etheree)

Star – Crossed Love (inverted etheree)

Just when you thought you know how the world is
to two star-crossed lovers victims of  circumstances and bad choices
you believed you feel their pain
and the silent screaming
without words you hear
you never know
up and till
you are
one.

 

P.S.

A continuation of my evesdropping (again) over a couple seated next to me in plane  on my flight back home from a recent travel abroad.

How Do I Say Goodbye?

20180218_124219

 

I.
I took the plane with you, our
hands joined together when you ask
I wanna know how can something
so wrong feels so right all along?
and when does a love so true
never actually was meant to be?
Will someone please let me know.

Chorus I:

So i say just love me and make me smile
‘Cos baby that’s all i need for a while.
Please help me make it through..

II.

The plane is on its final descent now,
Will this be then our last goodbye?
And soon it will be taxing
we will part ways, that’s for sure
But I still wanna know how do i say
my final goodbye?
Will someone please let me know.

Chorus II:

So i say just love me now and make me smile
‘Cos baby that’s all i need for a while
Please help me make it through.

 

Bridge..

Baby help me make it through
As i walk home alone without you..

 

 

 

P.S.

I was seated next to a lovely couple on a plane  during my recent trip abroad. Little did i know that this lovely couple will teach me one lesson in life that we thought we all know but actually really dont: that is -love really knows no bounds.
My heart truely bleeds as i silently watched them say their final goodbye.
A tear drop as i saw them kissed their probably last kiss.

The Flip

The Flip

When your world has turned
Up side down
You are left in the middle
Weary and lost
Waiting,
Wanting,
Holding,
For the next flip.

Choices

Some things in life are worth holding on,
and some need letting go
one is faced with so much options
but there are times that not even one
is worth the choice
you simply must give it up or die holding on and lose it all..
or live hating for wanting more…

Broken (inverted etheree)

You hit me the hardest, wounded deeply
Break my soul and destroy my spirit
Crushed me down and left me bleeding
Why do you love me so much?
And treat me so damn kind?
Yet, breaks my being
Tear me apart?
Why do i
Love you
Still?
