Spontaneous Combustion of Soulful Heart-Burst

Maybe that wasn’t love.
It was just a meeting
Of two souls,
Two lonely roads crossing
And sharing a moment.

An instant frozen in time.
As the city was asleep,
They were conversing,
Making the world,
Unearthing life,

Dissecting its secrets,
Taking their world apart,
Stone by stone, Speck by speck,
Just to make sense of it, temporarily,

Then rebuilding it
All over again,

Because they could not escape it.

As soon as they had set foot in reality again,
It carried on its spell and broke theirs,

Leaving them high and dry,
Lone as they were before.

Two hearts heavier still,
Having shared this experience

Out of time.
Knowing it existed,
Leaving them wanting,
Yet unable to conjure it up again.

Maybe some moments are just meant to be lived,

And not last,
Nor repeat.

Question is:
Ought they be cherished still,
Those rare gems?

Interwoven paths of loneliness.

    1. Thanks Ivor, I think cherishing them comes easy to me. I doesn’t come that easy to people around me though. There are lots of regrets out there, lots of resentment, especially when a new encounter doesn’t turn out the way you expected/ hoped it would.


  4. This is truly a masterpiece
