Forever is a Myth

You said
we were meant forever
embracing love
where skies met the ocean
united in the periphery
of some distant star

You said
our love would thrive
the stormiest of the nights,
and could face any gale
and would hold its deviant face
to any scary plight

You said
moon comes out in the night for us
basking our souls in its moonlit
forever till eternity

And then you left me
without much reasoning
or with any sane advice
you thought
I would be ruined
but wait, for I have a surprise
for I still live in that forever universe
but with my newfound happiness
and an aberrant pride

  1. Resonates. The promises of eternal love that extends to eternity, but then without any valid reason it just withers. But indeed even if others treat it as a myth we can always go on beleving in it.
    Beautiful and Enchanting piece. 🌼🌸✨
