I am gone

I am gone
like the whiff of wind
for I stalled for long
longing for you
holding my yearning heart
to get your attention
for you to accept my love

I am gone
for despite of showing
utmost sincerity in my words
and in displaying my earnest love
you showed ignorance
and left me hanging for eternity

I am gone
for your callous abrasion
for taking me for granted
showing me hope
and then snapping it away
for your boisterous claim
assuming I will never be gone

You may think it is a false alarm
and I will return
like flowers returning in spring
like the moon coming out of silhouette
like the sun appearing every dawn
but this time you are wrong
for I am gone
never to return again

        1. I know. But you know sometimes it is good to let go. Life has so much more. But often we live in the past or held in the present than liberating. I always appreciate your kind comment. Thanks for reading my work. I truly appreciate it ❀️

    1. Thank you Wendi. Sometimes letting go is most difficult but most reliving as well. I have personally experienced it. Always love your comment and perspective. Btw β€œI am gone” is slang and I used it intentionally. Did you notice 😊

  1. Follow what Elsa says and Let it goπŸ˜„

    To let go is a difficult and one of the most hardest decisions of life.But sometimes we have to do what we have to do for the sake of others and ourselves too.

    I bet whoever I have let go in my life have thanked god later🀣

  2. Such a painful exposition of letting go. Every verse speaks of the pain and the disappointment when taken for granted in a relationship. A feeling we all have endeared once or another in our lives. Very well portrayed, Shantanu.
