Skyfall

You have left a void in my heart
Today even my tears have run dry
But I know you are out there somewhere
And both of us share the same sky

I look for you in the clouds
Someday I hope I would see your face
People tell me that you would not return
And that you vanished without a trace

I loved you with all my heart
And you said that you loved me too
How could you just leave like that
Was what we shared ever true

At times I wish that I could fly
So that I can spot you from above
But soon the sky mocks me
It seems to have given up on our love

Every night I look up at the sky
Hoping that you are doing the same
Can you read my words on the blue canvas
Or have you already forgotten my name

I am standing here all alone
Awaiting your shadow on the sky
It is hard to survive by myself
But your thoughts help me get by

I am stuck in the beautiful past
Beyond it nothing I can recall
If comes a day when I would forget you
That would be the time when the sky shall fall

P.S: I had this crazy idea about associating the five elements of nature - fire, water, air, earth and sky to human emotions and love. And in the form of poetry. I already wrote about firewater, air and earth. This is the final one in the series, sky.

  2. Love the build up from this line
    "But I know you are out there somewhere
    And both of us share the same sky"

    to how you have used it again beautifully here
    "Can you read my words on the blue canvas
    Or have you already forgotten my name"

  6. Ah, such a beautiful ending to a wonderful series of verses. The sky element is my favorite of the lot.

    I am stuck in the beautiful past
    Beyond it nothing I can recall
    If comes a day when I would forget you
    That would be the time when the sky shall fall

    What lines Leo!
