This week’s guest writer is Ruby Khan. Before you read her stunning poem, here’s some information about her, in her own words:
“I am an office supervisor at a Psychiatric Clinic. I graduated from the University of South Florida, with a Bachelor’s degree in Business Management.
“On my blog, I ramble about anything and everything that interests me.
“I have also written a young adult novel about 70,000 words. I am currently on the hunt for an agent and hope to find one soon. The query denials continue to pour…..yet the search continues”.
Ruby’s poem is about love and the reason why love itself never dies:
Some say love never dies…does that really hold true?
Soul departs and cries…while by my side I’m only left with a genuine few
The shock anesthetize me like a pale pair of doll’s eyes…I lean on a friend before my legs fall through
Within seconds you’re somewhere in the skies…while I continue to wait until the clouds transform into a shade of dark blue
For sure, death was certain and should not be labeled a surprise…since the time and place was written before one started life anew
Yet, I repeatedly question your demise…knowing very well I won’t know why it had to be you
With tears in my eyes, my stomach fills with butterflies…whenever memories of you hauntingly come through
The ache never seems to die…for my heart still skips a beat and I continue to long for you
Though not soon enough but surely time will fly…I shall heal nonetheless but if only now I knew how to
Laughter, romance, and anger disperse with the opening of my eyes…yet my heart throbs at memories that were once realities between me and you
As time passed by, my tears have run dry…in the process I now have a much better world view
After death, we will surely rise…that day I shall once again unite with you
For those that are wise…know that it is the power of love that makes the world continue
I now believe love never dies…as a matter of fact…it is a miracle that holds true.
