A whirl of sentiments,
The gush of emotions,
Feeling so dark and grim,
Looking for light at the end of the tunnel.

The flickering of a candle light,
Depicts how fragile life can be,
Today here lively and fiery,
Tomorrow gone in the eerie silence.

A feeling of loss,
Clinging on to shreds of memories,
What could have been that wasn’t,
The jagged pieces of broken hearts,
The betrayal, the hurt and the pain,
Left alone with my thoughts and regrets.

That feeling of loss,
The nostalgic sentiments,
The what ifs and maybes,
The things done that can’t be undone,
The ultimate feeling of love and life,
Slipping through the fingers like sea sand.
