She was his anchor, keeping him sane, and he was her glue, keeping her together. They were never apart if they could help it. It was only supposed to be a small business trip...But then the airports closed down to ease the spread of the virus, so the two lovers were apart. Little did she know it would be forever...


Girl’s Perspective

You’re so far away

I wish you were with me

Please come and stay

I need you, can’t you see?

My heart is aching

My mind is racing

Are you okay?

When will you say?

My emotions are large

My tears drop quietly

You are my charge

My energy

If you don’t answer, I’ll come

Mask and all

I’m stronger than some

But I’ll race at your call

Please tell me

Please don’t go

You’re across the sea

And I miss your glow

I want to hold you

To gain comfort, and to give

You are my glue

Without you, I can’t live

Is it the same for you,

Or are you alright?

I haven’t a clue

Because you aren’t in my sight

I’ve almost lost hope, 

But I’m trying to hold on

In truth, you were my rope,

But now you are gone

You went like the wind

And left me here alone

Maybe I was blind

Maybe I should’ve known

Did you mean to leave me

Right when you could

Did you take your chance to flee

The moment it seemed like you should

I was naive back then

I still am today

Because I jump when

I hear something you say

There are problems in the world

We should be solving them together

Instead, my heart is furled

Because you severed our tether

Now I am alone

What about you?

Have you simply grown

Learned to tie your own shoe?

Yes, I remember

I did it for you

It was my pleasure

And of those, I have few

Especially now

Now that you left

Are you sick in bed

Or are you healthy?

Are you well-fed

And eating plenty?

The reason you don’t answer me

And leave me in the dark

The reason you don’t hear my plea

To remember our spark

Is it because you’re hurt

Or do you ignore

This is something I blurt

To you, my heart I pour

If you would just let me know

If you could just send me a text

If you would just let me see your glow

Then I’d give it a rest

Instead, you leave me to guess

Terrible things

You put me in distress

And are pulling my strings

The strings of my heart

Now they are frayed

The longer we are apart

The more I feel betrayed

Sweet words you used to say

Your hands were delicate and soft

Then you were on your way

But at what cost

Not just the money-

But the ache of my heart

My stomach feels funny

Like I forgot my part

Is it all because of me

Did I do something wrong 

Is it no longer we?

Does your heart sing a different song?

Mine does not

It calls for you

You’ve got it all in a knot

You’ve got it asking who

Who to believe

Who to turn to

Do you deceive?

I need another clue

How much longer can I wait

How much longer can I bear it

I just need to think straight

I must use all my wit

I’m feeling so much pain

Pain you brought upon me

Maybe I should let go

Even if it breaks my heart

Maybe I should let go

And begin with a new start


Guy’s Perspective

My love, my dear,

My darling,

I fear

That I might be falling

It’s hard to feel

When I gave you my heart

To think this is real

I want a restart

I cough, and I sneeze

But the biggest pain I feel

Is this small squeeze

One that cannot heal

If only you were with me

If only I could see you

If only it could be

That I didn’t have to leave you

They say there’s no such thing, 

As a happily ever after

But together we could bring

Over the pain some laughter

Instead, I lie alone

Breathing some of my last breaths

I’m on my own

Lying on the bed of death’s

Yes, I am hurt

But I worry more about you

Once I’m under the dirt

What will you do?

Are you going to move on?

Are you going to stay strong?

I’m almost gone

It shouldn’t be long

Though I do wish

That I could’ve told you

Though I do wish

I could’ve given you a clue

I feel very blessed

For everything I had

I had the best

For that I am glad

My only complaint

The thing I really want to have

If I had no restraint

I’d want you, my other half

I don’t know which is worse

Not seeing you again

Because that’s like a curse

Or you being in pain

I hope someone tells you

What happens to me

I hope someone tells you

And you’ll come to see

Though I’ll be underground

I want you beside me

Though I won’t hear a sound

I need you beside me

We’ll be together forever

That’s what we said

What’s happening, however

Fills me with dread

I couldn’t say goodbye

One last time, and

I hope you don’t cry

But you’ll certainly be stunned

There was nothing we could do

Don’t blame anyone

What we’re going through

Is happening to everyone

Will you remember me

Or will you forget

I want you to be free

And live without regret

I’m sorry, truly

I didn’t mean for it to end this way

Sometimes the world does things cruelly

Don’t let it shade you in black and grey

Keep your cheer

And keep your smile

Wipe away your tear

I’m not worth your while

I feel my consciousness slipping

So I guess it’s time to say goodbye

My heart is nearly ripping

It’s too late to ask why

I love you is all

I really have to say

It might seem small,

But I hope it goes a long way

This is stunning - so creative, so tragic, so subtle, so timely....and such amazing poetry as everyone else has said. How many stories between real people must be transpiring like what you've written? I think this is the most poignant love story I've ever read. I want to keep praising it, but I don't know what else to say! Thank you for writing this.

Here as requested! I absolutely loved this story! Personally, I feel like poetry has lots of emotions flowing through its lines, and you’ve managed to capture these emotions really well! Poetry is not easy to write, let alone rhyming and portraying emotions between two characters. Beautifully written story!

This story was amazing, Amany! I could clearly feel the character's pain through your writing. It was upsetting that the girl thought the guy moved on from her, and tragic that the guy was not able to explain and say goodbye completely. Outstanding job!

This is definitely my style of poetry. The rhyme was very understandable and kept a great rhythm. Sometimes poems can be very difficult to understand, and i find that sometimes the simpler styled like this one here, are just as beautiful. Great job.
