While we rest in peace

While we rest in peace

after spending myself I had earned this trip,
spent all my blood and sweat, to be on that ship.
and it was money well spent or it seemed,
and oh my god, my luck just gleamed.

I was the last one to get aboard,
and was almost hysteric when the ship roared.
finally free from the clutches of the Satan,
I had a new life, yet to find my Beacon,.

and there he was, my charming prince,
I knew I was in love my heart was playing violins.
and as she neared me I was getting dizzy,
she was beautiful as Venus, God you've been busy.

The days ahead were mesmerizing,
the world was the same yet surprising.
so Lost were we in the eyes of each other,
the sea may go dry and it won't bother.

but fate tore us apart with the ship and the bay,
lost was the cause good bye we didn't say.
just drifted apart on the remains of the vessel,
How we survived is still a puzzle.

but gone was she to a land unknown,
with her I wish I'd have flown.
stuck I am in a work that isn't me,
a smile on the surface, to hide the heart that's crying.
finally on the sand so soft so warm,
my heart races to my love, whose gone.
Again in the clutches of the satanic world, I kept him Alive in my heart, a free bird.

The harbor had changed more than the transient sea,
though after three decades,from her love I am not free.
And when I see him my anxiety fades away,
I wanted the world to disappear and him to stay.

I couldn't restraint from touching the delicate flower that she was,
this isn't real, wait let me pause.
and seeseeing here there was the most beautiful sight,
somethings amiss the story doesn't seem right.

And as I walked while my heart paced,
I couldn't think it was god whom I faced.
and before I could touch and feel and regain my life,
she showed me the ring, she's someone's wife.

I counted every second of the past three decades,
and lost everything when I saw his face.
And yet I was bound to the one whom I married,
my soul he captured yet my heart he freed.

shattered I am I couldn't be his,
the one whom I love, the one whom I miss.
All I want is my heart to freeze,
and be with him while we rest in peace.

    I like this because it's long but keeps it's flow and also rhythm. The emotions, sadness, love and yearning are all there.

    I can see you have put in lots of thoughts as well as emotions in this write. As I was reading images of titanic, Romeo and Juliet kept playing in my mind. I could also see that each stanza was written with his and her views. Very well penned with all the yearning and love afloat.

    Just one thing though. This line:

    I counted every second of the past threw decades

    ^^I think you meant three instead threw.
    Also instead of writing of the past three decades, it will sound better for the past 3 decades.

    Liked the read..keep penning.
