Things we love

Things we mostly love
Positive affirmations;
Else just empty life

Myself, poetry

Meaningful things

And I thought I could not live through the pain

of losing first the people,

better to death i said once in rage;

losing people and then the things

that reminded me of those gone,

that was bound to hurt,and a lot.

what would have held my tears better

But the void i feared did not hurt,

memories flooded it like warm blood,

pain was numbing , tears all dry,

words were lost and so was a part of me.

lost things never hurt more than people

there was no desperate attempts

to restore any of that , any time

the things i mean, not relations

as if you alone could make them work

the emptiness hardened the heart

more than the people who stepped over it..

 

This was a response to Tuesday Tryout : Poem on things meaningful to you . Last month my laptop got formatted by mistake and I lost all my poetry , music , movies , pictures and what all .. And that emptiness still lives in my heart but strangely , it did not hurt any day , I never thought about it until i read the prompt.
