Day 3- NAPOWRIMO 2017 – Death Of Love

Published 03rd April 2017 by viewsofpreethib

Day 3- And now for our (optional) prompt! Today I’d like to challenge you to write an elegy – a poem that mourns or honors someone dead or something gone by. And I’d like to ask you to center the elegy on an unusual fact about the person or thing being mourned. For example, if you are writing an elegy about your grandfather, perhaps the poem could be centered around a signature phrase of his. (My own grandfather used to justify whatever he was doing by saying, “well, I can’t sing or dance, and it’s too wet to plow,” which baffled me considerably as a child). Or perhaps your Aunt Lily always unconsciously whistled between her teeth while engaged in her daily battle with the crossword puzzle. These types of details paradoxically breathe life into an elegy, making the mourned person real for the reader.

Today, I am going with the prompt but with a twist, coz it is not about the death of a person but it is actually mourning about the death of love the person once had.

Death Of Love!!!

“Change is constant”
You always said,
Mind and heart,
Were addled,
Did not forsee,
you included yourself!!!

Little did I know,
About the consequence,
Your love for me,
Came with an,
Expiry duration,
But my love for you is eternal…..

I was all your,
Though we had never met,
With no notice,
You departed,
My love was unattended,
For years I waited…

The day,
I was helpless & restless,
As my heart sensed,
The painful haul,
That was the day,
Our souls disconnected….

The wise have said,
Smiles are deceiving,
None can suspect,
At the septennial,
I mourn your,
Death Of Love!!!
