Swan song: In the land of stars

2 Oct
You were my knight in shining armor, my heart fluttered
and several times did i go weak in my knees at your very sight,
‘always felt you were too good for me & haplessly felt conscious at your side,
The greek God sure must have looked like you…
Ecstasy went ecstatic, the day you proposed to me.
Like a happy fairy tale, my life appeared to me,
‘cos this seemed too good to be true, this seemed too right to go wrong
wondered i, if our fates were penned by frolicking, happy angels
you were my pride, you were my joy,
& you were the reason for many a green eyed monsters
you my friend, soon became my everything,
with our stars & its roots being same,
our dreams & their fulfillment didn’t seem distant,
no, not at all
so addicted were we to each other,
so intoxicating was our love to each other,
and so close were we, towards our bliss of many lives,
like a mirage on a scorched desert, was the bliss that we longed for
we laughed till it hurt, cried till it hurt and yes, we loved till it hurt too
and then i saw, your love change from passion to obsession,
from affection to suspicion, from roses to thorns
you were fast losing your mind, i could see and you dint want to wait
i tried to help, but you sought no aid
you had gone immune, you had turned so cold…
that’s when i knew, the evil had crept in & crept without a sound
the devils had taken over from where the joyous angels left,
with the ink of pain, loneliness & betrayal; they continued to pen our fates
with ink so thick & ink so un-erasable, they wrote our fates so irreversible

their spell so evil, that your love seemed lust like
& your passion- a mindless obsession

my heart- once swollen with your love, now stung my very survival,
it hurt & it hurt bad, as little by little, love dripped away from a hole through it,
hole so deep, hole so abysmal, i knew it would never heal
bitter anger slowly replaced lost love…
none had survived it, none shall survive it, i knew
for what chance did we mortals stand in the face of a conspiracy,
conspiracy so fool proof, that was warmed & hatched in the very hands of the sly fate itself?
but fret not my beloved, cos together we shall defeat the wicked & the demonic,
they did win the battle in the mortal separation, but,
the immortal union- is a war to be won,
for in the land of stars, we shall meet again…
not angels, not demons, but we shall write our own destinies with the thick blood of our love this time
in the dream like place where me first met, shall be from where we start again,
by the promises made by our tormented hearts & words that are dissolved in our very souls,
with the mighty gods in their heavens as our witnesses, we shall meet again
no mortal agonies shall now pain our slumbering hearts, ‘cos when they wake, they shall wake in bliss, for we shall meet again,
in the land of stars, in the land of love eternal- ruled by none other but love itself…
– Bella Swan Jacob
(This one’s dedicated to all those who have loved & lost. With it’s inspiration from the ‘Twilight’ series by Stephenie Meyer, this rune is a total work of fiction, where due to circumstances beyond her control Bella Swan marries Jacob Black, only to realize later that both Edward Cullen and herself are still very much in love with each other. A rune dedicated to all the Bellas’ who lost their Edwards’ & vice versa to fate; and especially to those who were defeated by circumstances & fate, but were hopelessly conquered by love)

In the land of stars, we shall meet again…

    Oohhh, lot of emotion there, and lot of honesty. I hope the healing has begun, and well on its way. I’ll say one thing, not everyone has the stomach for sparrow’s flight, sparrow’s song and sparrow’s spirit. So, keep being yourself, sparrow! :))
