The Story Of Many.....PART I


The Story Of Many….PART I

Her soft and strong wings unfurl, poised for a journey to the unknown. Perched on the edge of her haven, she sighs. The eastern sun smiles its first golden hue…….the silver lined playful clouds beckon her. They seemed to be telling her, “Fly and come to us and we will show you bluer horizons.” She is not charmed; she knows the way will not be easy, living without her love, her soul mate.

She looks at her mate, her sad eyes loving him with her being and yet not wanting to, lest her resolution crumble in a heap. She glances at their love nest, remembering the stolen moments, the promising nights as he cradled her in his arms whispering how much he loved her. Time, distance, aloneness, agony all dissipated in those blissful moments. But today, it already wears the look of abandonment as loneliness and unshed tears gnaw at every nook and corner. Pain has triumphed after all, leaving no room for love. She turns away, she cannot bear it anymore.

He watches her amidst the devastation of broken dreams and lost hopes, loving her, wishing for her to find her path. His heavy heart is unable to set her free but reason tells him “It is meant to be, let her go.” He has nothing to give her except his undying love that reverberates across the vast oceans of their separate lives. “Perhaps,” he muses, “We will find each other someday across realms to become one.” As she leaves him, the flame in his heart that had lit his life, dim and finally dies. A part of him is locked away in that darkness, unreachable, impenetrable, and lost forever.

Spreading her majestic wings, her head held high she takes off in her flight, in her search, never once looking back. She couldn’t, if she did she wouldn’t be able to resist flying back to him, her senses overcoming her like before. As she soars higher and higher towards the sun, she sheds her ties with him one by one……..desires, longings, expectations, promises all stripped till there is nothing left except her naked self and an invisible thread of love that still holds her to him. Recalling only the painful agonizing moments she strengthens her resolve, saving the beautiful ones to sustain her on cold lonely nights.

The countless echoes of “I love you” that she had thought of whispering to him with every caress as they grow old together are lost today. She wonders if she will ever love anyone as much. Her eyes are moist, her heart is breaking but as the wind blows she knows she must follow it, as it carries her to pastures unknown. The sun warms her nakedness while she rests her weary wings riding with the wind and the clouds. They are full of promise but she knows she has long lonely days to live through before love crosses her path again.

Helplessness and a feeling of not ever being complete again envelop him as he is also poised to take his flight that will take him far away from her. He allows this one moment to stay with him for a few seconds as the silent sobs of his heart wrack his strong frame. Nothing will be the same and yet his life will continue to be as he chose it to be. With a final shake of his head as if trying to shrug off his grief, he too abandons their nest where many a memory lay scattered to be blown away by the winds of time. The blue limitless horizon stretches ahead…..she is no longer visible to him, gone just like that. His strong wings flap against the wind as he flies away towards another destination, his thoughts already turning towards his life, his home.

She will be someone cherished in his heart, not to be indulged in even in solitary moments because that will weaken his purpose in life. And perhaps someday when all is done and over with, duties, responsibilities, commitments all followed through, he would then undo that part of his heart where she resides and think of those stolen moments and promising nights and once again let the silent sobs in his heart break free. But that is another day…… today love and sentiment can be kept at bay.

  9. Rimly, girl, you have missed your call in life if you don't go into romance writing. I'm serious. That's where all the money is in publishing these days, or so I've been told.

  32. Rimly...it sounds as if you speak from experience, every word torn from the sorrow of a broken heart...yet the resolve to move on.

    I love this phrase.." That which you need the most will be yours when you give up the struggle."...and as one door closes another opens...they have flown through new doorways. Beautiful post Rimly...speaks volumes..yet the will to move on and succeed.

  40. Thank you Ravenmyth, it is really true if you give up running after something, it comes on its own but we humans are so impatient that we do not let life unfold. We are always in a rush.

  41. Swati thank you. I guess sometimes love like that is not meant to be.

  42. Hello Outlier thank you for commenting.

  43. Rimly - I agree with Debra! Your work is always stunning and brings on such emotion. Should you desire to write romance and be published you would certainly achieve that. This piece so reminds me of my lost love of many years ago from my youth-such painful memories. I am fortunately that I have a love of 20 years who has replaced that lost love many times over.

    Regards, Mari

  46. Hey Rimly -

    WOW. You're good. Really really gooooood ^5. I am a big fan of this descriptive visual; "He has nothing to give her except his undying love that reverberates across the vast oceans of their separate lives." If there is love Rimly, true love, then it will be so no matter what distance separates you. Thank you. :)

  47. "today love and sentiment can be kept at bay"
    today i stand in front of the blue bay
    today silently we behold the memories
    and let it drown in the deep blue sea
    green mosses grow to cover the dead promises
    i trust you, you trust me? simply vanishes
    taking me back to the shore, i sediment down in the sand and wait for the tide, i know it rises.
