The Dark Room And The Gloom

Post by on Thursday, April 7, 2022

First slide

I come back from the late evening run as usual; pass by your house

 

It’s night and your always bright house; is dark and quiet

 

Your plants and flowers seem sad and glum; it is the same with me, Oh ! Dear  Friend

 

They miss you as dearly as me - I fear; wonder though if you ever care

 

Your door misses my familiar knock; ‘Good Evening‘ was my opening shot

 

You used to open the door all smiling; Though I knew your ‘diplomat advocate’ personality, did some hiding

 

In your smile and looking down; I still heard a welcoming sound

 

You were always deep down on your ‘couch’; I am sure it misses your slouch

 

My seat was in the chair and it helped me adore you and stare!

 

I was always staring deep into your eyes, looking for some unexpressed love and affection buried inside

 

You too looked in sometimes a little longer and with our gaze locked stronger

 

But soon your shyness arrived, you looked away and smiled; Need to refresh your computer screen duly arrived

 

My heart as always kept beating fast; waiting to hear the imagined love syllables at last

 

Alas! I never heard them said; as if you never cared

 

You are away and your room is dark and gloomy; I sit sad and lonely

 

There is pain in my heart and deep yearning for love and acceptance;

 

With you gone, I know our last meeting is done; Forlorn, I feel my beautiful tender love is shun

 

Dear - stay well and stay clear and may GOD bless you with his eternal care

 

Amen!
