• A bird that flies amidst growls of thunder • A salient voice that is sucked into a void • A fairytale that lives in a world of wars • A sunflower that is in love with the moon
I gather four torn pieces of a letter and twenty three petals of black roses, then lay them side by side, willing to witness a work of farewell. But this silence is deafening and my mind too tired, to pick the handful of remnant voices in a dying wind. I steal a last glance before taking on the same way to an end.
( maybe I'm wrong, maybe this isn't the beginning of an end- the thoughts echo louder than ever, but it's time, as always )
An hour passes, or perhaps two.
There's another letter at the doorstep, and a bunch of roses. A group of poets and another group of florists enter through the backdoor. They spend an hour, and leave. Just like that. : :
Farewells are never easy. Unsaid goodbyes are tougher. For all the world and its people debate on, life oscillates between predictability and coincidences. A cosmos of thoughts in the mind and another of stellar orbs outside. For even the sky is a misnomer to a dweller beyond ours.
A million years pass by in a flash. Our perception of years, only a mere tool to help us survive the brevity of an existence.
I replay a jouska of yesterday but it plainly gives away the mundanity of days I'm living. I convince myself saying, atleast these emotions name me alive. For what's in a farewell, is also in voids. And it smells of an old love.
You and I, we're all living at ENDS.
/ To all the unsaid goodbyes, and voided presences /
Edit - This post is directed (in a quite indirect way) to the people I met here, who left without a goodbye. Unsaid words of farewell hurt more, still we can't stop loving the ones who left. I'm putting this up only later, coz I couldn't tell them anyway. It's been a long time here, and things just happen. People happen. But some day, we've to let go of everything, coz they just go anyway.
A farewell is a #paradox , including this. Khamsamnida Yeoreobun
writeforjoyWoww what you know. I needed this. I needed to read this. You are awesome.
tamanna3@chinmoy781125 yes you're definitely right on that things happen for a reason, whether good or bad that's another story. But they do. I'm glad you found this relatable. Thank you for your kind read. I see you're an old user who haven't written in a long while. I hope your write soon, but more than that I hope you're doing well. Have a nice day
