One Heart Less - Muhammad Bayazeed

Dear Heart,

//

Why do you hide,

where do you go?

//

For a moment all is fine,

then I guess I just don't know.

//

Dear Heart,

//

What is it, why are you afraid,

why won’t you speak?

//

Do you not want us,

do you not want this,

was that our peak?

//

Dear Heart,

//

What is there to fear,

we have known each other,

for so long?

//

We sang together,

we wrote together,

we watched together,

we had our own song.

//

Dear Heart,

//

Long it has been since we last...

sang and wrote.

//

Long it has been since we last...

watched and spoke.

//

Dear Heart,

//

Must this connection forever take a backseat?

Must these eyes never again meet nor greet?

//

Dear Heart,

//

Why the perpetual darkness?

Shall there never be light?

//

Must we not feel softness nor warmth?

Such an infinite, echoing twilight?

//

Dear Heart,

//

Why must this love go in vain?

Must it?

Let it not.

Hold hands again.

//

Let this love direct you,

and rebuild,

rebuild.

//

How else must one,

feel fulfilled,

be fulfilled.

//

Rebuild.

Be fulfilled.

//

Dear Heart,

//

All have slipped,

all have fallen,

all were not forever laid.

//

Some stood back,

stronger than ever,

others, forever played.

//

Dear Heart,

//

Perhaps you're not listening,

but deep down,

we know you hear.

//

Perhaps you've closed your eyes,

but deep down,

we know you're here.

//

Had you truly left,

we would have,

fallen by now.

//

You are not with us,

still you are,

with us,

somehow.

//

Dear Heart,

//

There is a marvel in your absence,

there is a magic in your presence,

there is something in your touch,

we feel your very essence.

//

You were the pluming, fragrant incense!

That glowing, radiant, far reaching fluorescence!

Excellent in character, the quintessence!

A walking, talking eloquence!

//

The all! The all! The all!

Sparkles, bubble, and froth!

Filled with such effervescence!

//

Radiance, radiance, radiance!

Effulgence, effulgence, effulgence!

//

Eloquence, eloquence, eloquence!

Excellence, excellence, excellence!

//

Elegance, elegance, elegance!

Relevance, relevance, relevance!

//

Beneficence, beneficence, beneficence!

Intelligence, intelligence, intelligence!

//

Dear Heart,

//

There is something special,

about,

you.

//

Almost too good,

to be,

true.

//

Magical,

mystical,

colourful,

through and through,

through and through.

//

Rejuvenating,

energetic,

unique,

you,

you.

//

Charismatic,

persistent,

unrelenting,

cement and glue,

cement and glue.

//

Dear Heart,

//

Tell us,

what shall remain,

of us?

//

Without,

just,

you?

//

Goals? Dreams? Ambition? Drive?

What could we live up to?

//

Dear Heart,

//

You are the finger licking sweet,

in this,

honeydew!

//

You are the morning life,

in this,

cock a doodle doo!

//

Cuckoo, cuckoo, cuckoo!

Cuckoo, cuckoo, cuckoo!

//

You are that ceaseless epitome,

in this,

dramatic deja vu!

//

You are the fighter in this prize,

beaten,

black and blue,

black and blue!

//

Your time is due!

Your time is due!

//

Be you!

Be you!

//

Review, review, review!

Renew, renew, renew!

//

Be new, be new, be new!

You knew, you knew, you knew!

Be you, be you, be you!

//

Be true, be true, be true!

Be you, be you, be you!

//

Through and through and through!

And through and through and through!

//

You,

You,

You!

//

O ever craved romance!

O glittery knight!

O shining armour!

O dazzling night!

//

O full moon,

just off white!

//

Strike us,

like an air tight,

love bite!

//

Be as you are!

Be as you are!

Profound with care!

//

Be as you are!

Be as you are!

Unfound and rare!

//

Astounding flair!

Dumbfounding glare!

Surrounding stare!

Resounding air!

Abounding prayer!

Expounding dare!

//

Matrimony! Matrimony! Matrimony!

What union! What union! What union!

//

No to separation! No to separation!

Communion! Communion! Communion!

//

Dear Heart,

//

We feel your touch,

as painful as it be.

//

And just like that,

dead to life, again,

we feel, we hear, we see.

//

See!

See!

See!

//

O fiery flame!

O jingling bell!

//

O spirited soul!

O watery well!

//

What with empty vessels!

What with empty vessels!

//

No! Lifeless pebbles!

No! Lifeless pebbles!

//

What with, such hollow caves!

What with, such shackled slaves!

What with, such windless waves!

What with, such grotesque graves!

//

Dear Heart,

//

You are!

You are!

You are!

//

We nought!

We nought!

We nought!

//

You art!

You art!

You art!

//

We thought!

We thought!

We thought!

//

Dear Heart,

//

You are that worthy body,

oh so independent.

//

We are this valueless chain,

you are that venerated pendant!

//

We sit,

needy,

waiting,

hopeful,

trusting,

dependent.

//

Death to life!

Death to life!

//

The dead are alive!

The dead are alive!

//

Dead or alive!

Dead or alive!

//

The dead are alive!

The dead are alive!

//

Live to die!

Live to die!

//

That is a life!

That is a life!

//

Deaf to life?

Deaf to life?

//

Have a life!

Have a life!

//

Be alive!

Be a life!

//

Come near Heart,

won't you?

//

We miss you.

//

Love from,

a heartless lover.
