THOSE BURNT LETTERS

THOSE BURNT LETTERS

P.C Sulaiman Sait
Faded are those letters
Written with drops of blood,
from the bottom of my heart.
Faded are those papers,
that turned yellowish brown,
ever since we been alone.
Faded are those memories,
blurred are those moments
since destiny split us apart.

I wrote to her daily,
till she halfheartedly pledged,
to finally become someone’s dear.
They say love comes
when it has to, and
that’s when the old disappears.
But, what about those letters?
Those moments I preserved all this while
will they always be here?


I tried to get over them
But; I couldn't further see
those traceable moments of failure.
Gripping me were those emotional bouts
like an iron fist around my heart
sinking me to the bottom.
I wanted to raise, I wanted to live
So I burnt those letters,
those letters which involved you.

  1. It's most difficult for those who're left behind to resume their lives. But to live, we need to move on without any unnecessary baggage to weigh us down. Lovely poem.

  2. Yeah. It's hard to let go of love, and a person who meant the world. But you must if you must, and it's a start I suppose. Emotional poem, Sulaiman. All the best for BAT.

  3. Love is a mystical thing - it exposes one to pretty much every duality that life as to offer....and yet, its better to have loved and lost than to have never loved at all? thats what they say :-) Life goes on....

    nice writing - all the best for BAT!

  4. Bro,

    What is this. The poem, the letter and yes... Life is life that. No, love itself is painful sometimes.

  6. The memories are painful indeed, but what if you look at it the other way?
    Find yourself lucky to hold on to memories of a person you loved and they loved you back.
    Good luck for BAT. =)

  10. Its better to find hope and move on, rather than keeping relics of a past which would not let you live. After enough time has gone by, you look back at those memories as a distant person and they look like empty seashells. Beautifully expressed.
