Lurching heart,
Encircled by deep emotions
Fights tears back
Lips quiver
As it force a wan smile
Eyes frightened to
Reveal the hidden feelings
They know…
A very special emotion
Burgeoned between them
They know…
Memories will haunt
They know…
Missing each other is inevitable
Stubborn enough to admit
A pain strikes hard when
The thought of never seeing each other again
It’s difficult, they know
But, no matter what
Nothing can be changed…
Feelings akin
But destination different
Heart has to understand
It’s time to separate their ways
With aching heart

It’s time to say goodbye

Carry On Tuesday says that it’s their last prompt due to decreasing participants (Maybe sometimes altering the format (single word or photograph apart from phrases or lines)  can make a difference). I’ll be happy if it continues and many more bloggers participate in Carry on Tuesday prompts. Anyway, I would like to say that it’s been a pleasure writing for Carry on Tuesday.
