Today I buried our love
There was no one to mourn it except me
I was planning to invite you to the funeral
But you were long gone.
You have moved on a long time ago
To making love with virtual lovers
And lifeless paper dolls.
Nothing emotional about it,
Just me alone .
I was trying to grieve
But tears won’t fall.
Some pain I felt, seeing the casket come down.
Some pain, but mostly numbed,
I have been numb through the years,
Out of reality, building sand castles and dreams that never rhymed.
Killing it was the proper thing, what is expected,
By society and all that judge.
Seeing the carcass was good.
At least it brought me to reality,
The reality that love has been dead,
a long time ago,
I just did not get it.
Burying it was just a confirmation.
I read the epitaph – it says
“In this place Love was buried.
Love tried to live,
But Love gave up finally.
