A LOVE AFFAIR, Chapter IV: The Inevitable End


Obstacles along the cruise
Made them weak and doubtful
The ship's heavy, hard to push
The lady jumped remorseful

The boat, vulnerable
Lost its beauty and might
The man held on, hopeful
But the lady's out of sight

Promises were unfulfilled
Man 'neath the wreck buried
The pact was dissolved
Free is the one who survived

On the beach it started
The fire was ignited
On the beach it ended
The flame has subsided

A LOVE AFFAIR, Chapter III: The Blossom
A LOVE AFFAIR, Chapter II: The Beginning
A LOVE AFFAIR, Chapter I: The Meeting


**To love is not a choice,
it is instinct but to acknowledge
or to disregard it is your choice.**

About R.S. Mallari

Through poetry I am trying to break the barriers of ethnicity, cultures and even beliefs for we humans have the same emotions, the same desires and aspirations. We may differ in colors, in language, and food that we eat yet we are still living under the same sun, swimming and sailing on the same seas and sleeping under the same stars.

Very good. Made me a little sad that it was titled " The Inevitable End".
Seemed each piece was a life journey. Bravo.

Through poetry we can inspire others, we can make someone smile and words can make others cry be it of joy or sadness.
