You Didn't

You said that you would come with me Beyond the hill of tragedies, and see- A world that's jovial and isn't still, A world where feelings are for real. You said you needed me, And I , too, promised to be your lee. I promised to stay by your side Even in places where the Dark resides. It was just your smile that kept, My dead soul moving right and left. It was just your octave, That kept my heart from being grave. What am I to do Now that you've left? You kept playing that tune, And it's still in my head. They carried you out And mumbled, you'd rest in peace But why don't you shout And tell them, you're afraid of being alone. Tell them how you needed me Tell them how you'd wanted to see, The world that's beyond the tragic hills, A world where you claimed even I could feel. Now, everything's just like before you came, Everything is silent and the still world is lame. The silence is so huge that it engulfed your tune. Like the Dark night which does the same to the moon. You're engraved on a concrete slab, Just like the millions around you with a tag. They say, you're beyond the hill of tragedies, And now I feel that you came and went like autumn leaves. Didn't you say that we'd cross that together? Or did you just played like the others and were a liar? I don't believe the latter 'Cause I like you, forever. I'm sorry I didn't cry, Maybe 'cause I'm used to that. And maybe 'cause I knew you were a lie. You weren't the first, you know, There were a lot like you who went without good-byes. Even so, I never felt attached, It was only your tune that ever held me back. But now it's fading too, just like the other's. I wish I could stick with a glue, but even so I can't be with it forever. So, I guess I'll just let you go, Like everyone else, you neither proved a friend nor a foe.

Yushi, I didn't know what it was I liked so much about your poem so I reread it and it jumped at me. The 3rd stanza is simply brilliant, and I believe that it illuminates the whole poem. A heartfelt 7:) Amitiés
