The Seven Quatrains of Lost Love


Seven days of the week,

Not a moment’s escape,

Seven doors to Heaven,

But in hell, I traipse.


Seven colours of the rainbow,

Tears drop like a disco sphere,

Seven sages of The Constellation,

Your home now, I fear.


Seven Steps around the holy fire,

Till death do us apart, our promise,

The Seven Cosmic Worlds,

If only I could bring you back like Orpheus!


The Seven Seas,

I shall fare, spanning my wings like the dove,

The Seven Lands,

I shall tread, in search of my love.


The Seven Heavenly Virtues,

I was blessed to be your beau,

The Seven Deadly Sins,

Now I live in my inferno.


The Seven Notes of Music,

The sombre call of death by the Conch,

The Seven Wonders of The World,

An Eighth, I shall launch.


The Seven Ages of Man,

The curse of an Old Mind and a Young Heart,

The Seven Chakras,

I meditate as my life falls apart.
