Final Act of Love

Final Act of Love, a poem by Robert A. Sieczkiewicz

The water is darker than a squid’s ink.
Looking to its cold bottom was useless.
Jumping in did not know how far I’d sink,
Drifting down it felt to be bottomless.

Crushing aching pain brought me here today.
An eternal love wasn’t ever to be,
From the moment your heart began to stray.
For me there could be but one destiny.

The water takes me to my resting place,
Going willingly without any fear.
My final vision will be of your face,
Wondering if your eye will shed a tear.

In the end giving you all that I could.
My love for you was never understood.

    Oh my, such dispair! Tragic to believe one can’t go on and death is the only way to relieve one’s pain.
