THE GIFT OF LOVE! A poem composed by Monalisa Parida 


A poem composed by Monalisa Parida 


There’s an untold story 

Inside my heart!

The days we spent together, 

The places we walked together. 

We just went hand in hand, 

The time passed just like sand in our hands.

It’s a tale of the downfall 

Of a heartbeat!

The rhythm we sang for each other, 

The quotes we told each other. 

All of those just hidden in the box of memories, 

I cried for you and burned thousands of my calories. 

At times 

Knock out!

For a while, 

Closing the eyes, 

Comforts but

For how long will it last?

The oceans of tear breaks

Here and there 

It cannot be controlled. 

And flows out 

Taking the shape of 

Stream of water. 

I would like to open the box again, 

Once again, I would like to feel the pain. 

You had given me the gift of love.
