Our last kiss...

We stand here, in the melancholy cobbled street,
in each other's embrace, witnessing our hearts' beats,
the night is gloomy and so shall our lives be,
sealed with our last kiss, this is the final goodbye we need to see.

We cried together, we laughed, we shared,
all those feelings, all those moments, how we cared,
we were like two souls wrapped in one,
never knew that our lives in the end were to be shunned.

We could not fathom this rueful decision,
where our separation had become someone else's mission,
but in the end we had to succumb,
we turned ourselves in, to the emotions so numb.

"So this is it", he said with a painful smile,
"looks like it", I smiled feeling riled,
a mournful tear rolled down my cheek,
he kissed it softly, lending it a part of his mystique.

We cried, we smiled, a little caught up between both,
he hugged me tightly, finding difficult to let go,
he looked into my eyes, and he could see through,
right into my soul, as if imploring me to stay glued.

We looked away, still hugging tightly,
wishing that this nightmare wouldn't be so ghastly,
his warm embrace is the only place for my love,
and my gentle heart is his ego's only shelter and glove.

We stood there deserted, as time was passing by,
we wanted the night to freeze, to always stay this tied,
but this wasn't a fairy tale, we had to wake up soon,
to face the reality, to try and take our destiny as a boon.

We looked at each other, wrapped up in love as if possessed,
he raised his soft hands and started to caress,
for a moment we forgot all about the decision,
he handled me with care and with meticulous precision.

Our lips finally found their way to each other,
they glided into each other, as smooth as butter,
just like the old times, but this last kiss was special,
for there will be no more now, and so our lips congealed.

My hands in his soft hair, that familiar cologne,
our bodies were uniting, heart to heart, bone by bone,
life was flowing through our otherwise clogged veins,
we could feel the power of our love inspite of our refrains.

Our feelings took over, our kiss was ever-passionate,
inspite of the pain in our hearts, the love sparkled on our face,
we went on kissing each other, like there was no tomorrow,
atleast for us there wasn't, not together, only sorrow.

But we had to stop, to let go off each other,
to stay apart, with our love alive in our hearts to flutter,
with the strongest willpower, our lips mournfully parted,
like a magnet repelling, only this was darted.

One last kiss marked the end of our future,
all the efforts were in vain, that were carefully nurtured,
even though we can't, for now, be together,
but in this world, everything changes like seasons and weather.

Hope can drive a person crazy, but it won't drive us,
for it will be the hope to see each other again, that'll be more than a plus,
we might not live in each other's lives anymore,
but we are living in each other's hearts evermore.
