Not destined for each other

     Game  of  god   or  a  way  of  life  …
Fate left  me  so   weak   and   tiny.
Forbidden  love  ; a  trick  of  life.
Passion  alights  in   brevity.

Years   back  ,  decision   hard  I  made.
     Game  of  god   or  a  way  of  life  …
A last  kiss  and   goodbye  I bade,
Shattered,  I could   not   be  his  wife.

Lived  in   hope  ; love has afterlife.
He came back  to   hold  me  in   maze  
     Game  of  god   or  a  way  of  life  …
At  my  door  he stood  like   in   daze. 

Patient! Time   stood   with  nurse's  word.
Ethic  was  fighting   emotion, 
His  wife  sat  beside  him. Absurd!
     Game  of  god   or  a  way  of  life  …

A day late on my reading but still a hearty congrats on yesterdays feature as poem of the day. What I really like about this poem beside the message inside is the spacing of your words, it gives it a stronger texture to it. Very good Sunita. :)

I do agree, once I used to think having love reciprocated is a boon but when this is achieved and there's lost, you are just held in an emotional block thinking what went wrong? Thanks for going through and your comment. :)Sunita
Date: 7/31/2016 10:53:00 AM
So emotionally expressed in your well-written Quatern with the repetitive line that questions the 'why', Sunita. I wish you all the best for the contest. 7 Hugs, Sandra

I'm so glad the form turned out to be good and the poem is appreciated, I had some difficulty keeping 8 syllables per line and I'm glad it conveys the message. Thanks Sandra for reading and for your nice comment. :) Sunita

Sadly, I think both a game of God AND way of life. Nice way to do the contest, Sunita.
