Next To Her #cinquain #senryu #poetry.

The two lovers
used to love
each other
very much.

They believed,
their love
was as delicate
and beautiful
as a peacock’s feather.

Both of them
used to swear
in the moonlight
and chat about love.

One day
a strange situation arose.
The girl died
in an accident.

The boy
was transformed
into a chain smoker
and an alcoholic.

He lost
the will to live.
In her memory,
he wandered far
and wide alone,
and died a few days later.

His only last wish
was that
‘his body be buried next to her’.

Sudden
event changed life
heart overtook the mind
the mind turned to a transition
with love

Digital device
some happy moments clicked
in a place of rest

    1. This is a true story, even after two years it has not crossed my mind. When Sadje gave prompt, I remembered this incident and wrote it down. I don’t know if this has become a dark tragedy. He was our Ex- student., David! 😓
