Battle Of Heartbreak

written by: JayM



And when I was awoken,
It was to a different face,
From the night before,
A passage of time,
A night of revelations,
Such a change,
Of heart,
Reflected upon from your very soul.

The temple may have crumbled,
Nay, but passions may never seem woe befallen.

For such an eye,
Has yet to see
embers dying,
Affections may have devolved, once,
Affectations unmasked reveal bare faces within,
Warmth bereft.

Moulded to lay the kiln,
Ignite flames,
Lays the dust of shattered bricks,
Embraced in piles of worth.

For such an eye,
Has yet to see
embers dying,
Aglow of
untainted words
in bloom,
Among cracks within walls of thought,
And rocky shores,
Watered by the tears of the sun,
Pools of nectar within…



JayM is a poet and writer from Mumbai, India; who strives to make sense of the increasingly multiple, ambiguous and paradoxical world around him through his verse and prose. He writes poetry - free verse and traditional haiku; apart from satire based upon his travels. He takes life with a pinch of salt, and advocates that doing so makes it highly palatable.
