If only you know

If only you would realize some day, how much have you hurt me,

If only your heart ever, craves for me or my presence…

If only you feel that love again someday for me,

If only you are affected someday by my absence…

Only you can end all my suffering and this unbearable pain,

If only you would know what you could never procure…

If only you go through the memories of past once again,

Since the day you left my heart has bled, no one has its cure…

If only you would bring that love, those showers and that rain…

If only you would come back and see what damage you create,

I’ve been waiting for your return since forever more…

If only you would see the woman that you have made,

You said we cannot sail through, how were you so sure?

If only you can feel the old things that can never fade,

You may have moved on, but a piece of my heart is still with you…

I know how I’ve come so far alone; I know how I’m able to wade,

People say that I’m insane and you won’t ever come back again…

Maybe you would have never made your separate way,

Maybe you would have stayed with me and proved everyone wrong…

If only you would know the pain of dying every day,

If only you would feel the burden of smiling and being strong…

  1. The anguish of failed love is palpably relayed in your words. Lovely. And yet, so is the desperate cry for reconciliation. Whilst everyone’s story is unique, there is no freedom and no authenticity in denying oneself the truth of the unraveling of love’s ends. Indeed, I have found that much truth is revealed through how one negotiates relations with those who once were pivotal conspirators of life. Anguish not over what is not, my dear. (If, of course, this speaks to anything true to you) Thank-you for sharing.
