When You Were There With Me

By Fiza Pathan

Top post on, the community of Indian Bloggers


When you were there with me, the breeze forgot to breathe itself over the evergreen trees

When you were there with me, for the briefest moment, I could count all the blood red drops that entered my aching heart

When you were there with me, I was speechless in a crowd of babble only silence could comprehend

When you were there with me, the earth seemed like heaven with a dash of pixie dust in my vacant stare

When you were there with me, I could never get enough of your voice resonating tenderly into my yearning ears

When you were there with me, the raven was a falcon and the sky was my ground upon which I glided into the night of magical feathers.


But now you aren’t here anymore, so this poor soul has to linger with the tide that dashes upon the rocks of my heavy laden chest

Why did you have to go? No answers, no questions and no replies to my unearthly cry.

However much I try, your memory is still impaled within my body and the pain remains till my thoughts rot in the darkness

Blood flows from my cuts-yet I’m quiet as the dew that saunters towards the green leaf in the early hours of the morning.

You were my all-but you left me behind and now I sing to your reflection in my looking-glass eyes … the time is lost when you were with me.

  1. Lovely, thank you.

  2. Romantic and painful, guess they both go hand in hand.

  3. Beautifully weaved 🙂
