Adieu

Saying Good-bye is very painful, but sometimes that is the only option you are left with. Because as you look back you cannot recognize the path that brought you here any more. The paths have changed , the have goals changed and somewhere amidst all these, you have changed!

Silently as I walk away from my past; I hear someone call my name.
I see you standing there waiting for me as if since ages.
Did the night mare end? I doubt as I trace back my steps towards you.
I was living in a cocoon till now as I engulfed myself with your love and warmth.
I would have never wanted to trade that place for anything on this earth.
In those arms of yours, I felt finally I was at home. But it was not destined to be.
I was rendered homeless as you threw me out of our life.
I crawled back many times only to be pushed again and again.
The agony and the pain seemed unbearable each time as I tried to crawl back 
And…in the end, the pain won. It perished the cocoon around to conjure a stronger me.
I soared higher and higher in the sky with my newly found strength; breaking all the shackles that were tearing my soul; only to hear you beckoning me.
Shall I or Shall I not? My heart seems to debate with each beat.
Suddenly my soul lets out a scream, ‘No..oooo. The anguish of the journey from a cocoon to a butterfly is colossal, but there is no road back from there. The only way is ahead.’
Good bye Love!

  5. Very well expressed. As they say, if you share your pain it reduces to half and if you share your happiness it doubles. By writing this post, hope your pain has reduced a little bit now.

    1. To be honest SG it took me a lot of effort to even write about it... hope you understand. By the grace of God I am much better now as I am comfortable talking about it which I was not earlier.

      And yes sharing it here, knowing you all are here to listen and comfort me adds on the good feeling in my heart!

      Thanks a ton :)

  6. Great post! I have said goodbye many times and each time a new beginning waited for me. That is exciting and also painful but something that we have to go though. I hope you find abundance of happiness after the painful goodbye.

  7. Oh, Me, I felt drawn back to the very same experience - my heart being broken by the same person, more than once . . .
    Your reflection is so powerful, your words expressing immediate emotions, your heart on your sleeve. Raw, poignant, and so honest. I am still trying to catch my breath . . .
    Blessings!

      This is the same feeling, of a person doing it to you again and again. But then I think that is what made me stronger and gave me the courage to finally say Good bye!

  12. I could truly feel the heartache you would have experienced while penning down this piece. As much as goodbyes hurt, remember that they are only new beginnings.
    Goodbyes also mean that you aren't scared to let go when necessary. And trust me when I say that it requires a lot of courage!
    Hats off to a stronger Me!

    Love and hugs coming your way :)
    Take care dear!

  15. I hear you. the feeling of bidding adieu forever is very painful and hurting. A part of you wants desperately to cling on and the other knows that bidding adieu is the only way out. Letting go is almost like a caterpillar coming out its comfort zone. Only when it comes out, it can go on to become a beautiful butterfly.

    Joy always,
    Susan

    P. S: Thanks a lot for your lovely words on my FB page. Glad that you are around.
