Crumble into cosmic dust

She could no longer decipher

The architectural designs

Of her feelings.

She felt like a green seaweed

In a tumultuous sea.

Her self-contained look vanished

With a sudden downpour

Of calamities unfathomable,

Insurmountable, which nothing could elucidate.

Tied in a spaghetti-like tangle,

She listened to the beats

Of her heart’s misery.

Her eyes moistened

And she thought how

The pristine scintillating beauty

Of her heart had been defaced,

The immaculate tenderness

Of her soul turned to charcoal.

Rose replete with thorns,

She was stripped of the rose

And left with the thorns.

The music of her finely tuned instrument

Disappeared, never to come back again.

Left with the loathsome notes

of the eulogy of pain,

She looked at the pale ethereal moonlight,

Sipping the honey of solitude in quietude.

Serene and solemn,

Plunged in a sea of silence,

Caught between two polarities,

She allowed herself to crumble

Into cosmic dust.

    Such a lovely , wistful poem ! So lyrical , poignant and vivid ! “Sipping the honey of solitude in quietude.
    Serene and solemn,”
    Beautiful alliteration !
