A Lover’s Grief Part 2

I dwelled at that moment on what I had done,

And considered the weight of the monster I’d become.

Then I thought, No, a monster I was not.

She deserved this fate, and that, I’d forgot.


For once long ago, our love had been true.

But the day we had met, she thence came to rue.

She told me she found my company a bore

And decided she loved my person no more.


It was fair and good, the choice that I made,

One easily avoided if only she’d stayed.

But when she left me, I then did infer

That I could not bear to live without her.


I decided, then, that in no grief would I wallow,

And embarked on the path I came then to follow,

Making, that day, the inevitable choice

And succumbing at last to the fiendish voice.


I found her sitting alone in a far removed park,

Basking in the peaceful calm of night’s dark.

Slowly yet steady, I approached her side,

And asked her, “One moment? Please, Love, oblige.”


Aft’ scant hesitation, she nodded her head,

Gave me room on the bench, and then she said,

“You know I still love you, even after your lies.

But I can’t even count the number of my tries.”


I said, “Oh, my love, remain here with me.

Without you, Love, I can no longer be.”

I tried to enfold her in the nook of my arm,

Determined to keep her safe from all harm….


About korastoynova

With my husband, Simeon Stoynov, I travel the world in pursuit of our dreams, of which we have many. And, thankfully, all of our dreams are within our reach. We have made sure of it. From our lives as competitive ballroom dancers, a life which has taken us around the world and back, to my struggles to becoming an author, to Simeon's love of business, we have learned what it means to sacrifice, to apply ourselves with discipline, and to enjoy the journey to success. Our lives truly are made of the stuff of dreams.
