Under My Feet

Echoes of the thunder silenced
the love ditty I sang for you.
Unabating force of the rainstorm
dented the soil of delicate love.
The lightning flash cracked
the only hope I had from you.

The limpid blood
of a wounded love
spilled under my feet.

The faith that had kept us together
slid down the skin along the raindrops.
The gravity of your wrath and doubts
pushed down the lightest drop of hope.
The love of acceptance that had kept its
head above water drowned in potholes.

The treasured dream
of being with you 

crushed under my feet.

  1. I am spellbound by these lines K,

    The faith that had kept us together
    slid down the skin along the raindrops.
    The gravity of your wrath and doubts
    pushed down the lightest drop of hope.

    The depth and the beauty of your words straight away touches the heart 💕

    PS : I love your chappals 😊
