The final embrace

by Shah   Mar 25, 2021


I still remember the first time
Your chest pressed against mine

The embrace felt like paradise
Utmost pleasurable and so nice

This feeling kept us both together
I felt so light like I was a feather

Now these feelings are history
It was ended by your and his story

But I still do embrace very firm
Saying it again just to reaffirm

I didn't let go my tight embrace
Even when I am in deep disgrace

But this embrace is a bit different
The past is past, this is the current

I learned this lesson with much pain
For the sake of love I had to be slain

How to live in the dark I have learned
After all the candles I lit were burned

Darkness is a reality I need to live with
I might disappear in it and become a myth

The fear of dissolving won't scare me off
Even if I might struggle as it seems tough

I open my arms and want to embrace
When I see it from close, face to face

This embrace might be the final and last
Something I wasn't able to do in the past

Now I have seen there is no other way
So let me embrace without any delay

I open my arms to my own darkness
This final embrace feels so harmless
