An Ode To “once Mine” Love

An Ode To once Mine Love short poem

Photo by ajari

We meet again , after a long five years
I always wished never to see you
Never ever, when I bid GoodBye
Unfathomable was the depth of hurt
You gifted me, when you rejected
My unbridled love for you

Each day grew the fire of anger
In me, and it has subsided now
This moment, when I saw you..
There is still love residing in me…

I ask her “How’ve you been?”
She keeps mum, looks at me
And I find it hard to stop
The mass of tears rolling
And that said it all
She was a proof of another
Unhappy life lived

I ponder what am I to do now?
I am helpless to help this woman
Another Man’s Woman
Who was mine and only mine
Once upon a time
I begged her to be mine
But she said I am worthless
And of no wealth

If only she had the guts
To be mine
It would never have been the tears
But love, laughter and happiness
All in her life…..

If only she had loved me
The way I loved her
And understood the deeper charm
Of love with or without wealth
They would not be tears
But love, laughter and happiness
All her life…

Love is always somewhere in the corner of the heart. Unrequited one is always a thorn in the heart.
