Silent Goodbye

a poem by Jayati Chowdhury

My heart needs a potion
To bury those days
When you were everything to me
The rest, insignificant.
Regret to think, those moments are
Now, but haunting memories…
We are just a face in the crowd
And wish we never face.
Life has taken its course
After our love has gone awry,
We know our hope is intense
Forlorn love, will never revisit.

Our hopeless feelings
A relentless burden
It’s time that it is laid to rest
And we do justice to our present state.
My heart bleeds…
Yet I bid you farewell
And on one tireless day
You will understand
Silent Goodbye – the appropriate end.
