Letting You Go Forever- Response to Brenda’s Prompt Challenge Week 20-Regret

Misbah enjoys poetry and loves to convey the messages of Love through her poems.

No regrets

No regrets

The Back Stage Story

Brenda Arledge, a fellow Hubpages writer and a very good friend of mine whom I now call Bredz. She doesn't need an introduction; everyone is familiar with her. She gives us fantastic word prompts every week to help us enhance our creative abilities. She provided us the word prompt 'Regret' this week.

So, without further ado, here I am. I'm hoping Bredz and my other hubber friends will enjoy it.

The Love Was Pure

My beautiful sweetheart

is already far gone,

My beautiful love is already gone,

perhaps forever!


You were mine,

Yes, You were mine,

irresistibly bare and

brimming with passion.


Never I have you

The love was pure

never having to let this Love go.

Rather...


But we parted…

And now, with the vibration,

in my heart...

I'm grieving your absence.


A person without hope

who has been sentenced to death

What am I going to do?


the wonder of creation, or

the radiance of your eyes

Are you ready for a fresh day?

Will you forget?



Everything that has vanished

I am lost in the valleys of sorrows

there is nothing left

everything has finished….


Like It has never existed...

unless in a Dream or

an Illusion…

Wake me up, it’s dark without you…


I want to ask you

the sincerity of love?

Silence, or even punishment,

is unbearable to me


If you still want to leave

do so with a kiss...

make this parting

easy for me!


I don’t want to live in regret

nor do I want you

to live that way!


I'm trying it all,

to erase your looks,

as well as your gestures

from my memory


why it appears challenging,

especially when you're around

and quietly walk away

without saying a greeting

Parting is never easy, but it is sometimes the only choice available. In love, be a fighter and work hard to achieve your love, but if you fail, make a memorable goodbye.

— Misbah

Letting go

Letting go

Letting You Go Without a Regret

I've let you go.

without any worries

It was never easy for me

to say Good Bye!


Surely I acted correctly:

two cities that are far apart,

two interconnected tales

Behind them, entangled stories


two worlds vying for a merger

It was, however, impossible.

At long last,

They had surrendered...



But I don't have any regrets:

I gave my heart and soul,

I achieved the unthinkable,

I've never been afraid.

natural tragedies, and

pushed back against the darkness


I have no regrets

because I lived my life

to the end, making every effort

even if I ended up losing,

I am satisfied.


I never gave up fighting.

to achieve what I desired

As a result, I feel no remorse.

Never be sorry for loving.


Love is perhaps

only one thing

that continues to provide aid

to broken hearts such as mine!

Sometimes we only meet to say good-bye. Never be sad about parting because sometimes parting is also a Blessing in disguise. When one door shuts, God opens another; all we have to do is wait and watch, trusting that whatever happened is for our goodness.

Awwww letting go will always be hard. And everyone can relate for everyone was once broken, every person in our lives have last day with us and the worse part of that is that we don't know how soon it will be.

So because we don't want to suffer twice, all we can do is to LET THEM GO.

I enjoyed it both !!!!!! Take care of your heart my beautiful sis

Sending love and power hugs!

Linda Crampton from British Columbia, Canada on July 12, 2021:

You've created two very moving poems, Misbah. Thank you for sharing them.

Misbah Sheikh (author) from The World of Rebels. on July 11, 2021:

Bredz, wow. For both pieces, you've given an excellent summary. Surely God has better plans for us. His plans should always be trusted. I'm delighted you found my response to be a good one. Thank you so much for reading it and providing feedback. That is very kind of you. I truly appreciate that. Much Love!!

BRENDA ARLEDGE from Washington Court House on July 11, 2021:

This is the good one...Lol.

Misbah

In your poem, "The Love Was Pure"

you tell us a heartfelt story about a love that has been torn apart.

You show us the heartache & pain she feels since their love parted.

The pain is so deep she feels like she's been sentenced to death.

She wonders if he even thinks about her.

The silence breaks her heart. She feels like everything has vanished...there is nothing but emptiness left in her sorrow.

She wishes to turn back time.

It is too hard for her to face losing him this way.

She'd much rather part ways with a kiss.

To make it memorable & loving, so she can bear the pain of losing him.

But she doesn't want either of them to live with regrets, so she's trying to erase his memory from her mind.

But it's not easy when their paths cross & he doesn't say a word.

She wishes it had been a memorable Goodbye.

In your poem, "Letting You Go Without a Regret" you tell us that you have let him go.

That the path was never easy since you both had different backgrounds.

You finally surrendered to the impossibility.

You have no regrets.

For you gave your love with an open heart and fought hard against diversity.

Even if you lost in the end, You will never feel sorry for loving him.

Your heart is broken, but you know love is the one feeling that will mend it.

You ended this with a wonderful quote reminding us when one door closes another one opens.

These are fantastic works, Misbah.

We want our love to part in a way that doesnt hurt us.

We want to cherish those memories for all time...not be sad.

It is hard to let go, but sometimes we have no choice.

We must trust that God has a better plan for us than what our hearts want.

When one door closes, another one opens.

I've posted a link in the word prompt article.

From sadness to hope, and I will always love that message. Sadness is a way of life; hope is a gift we all have; from hope the way forward is revealed, if we are receptive to the message. Love this work, my friend, and it is wonderful to see you up and writing again. Blessings always!

Peggy Woods from Houston, Texas on July 11, 2021:

Your first poem speaks of sadness, but your second poem shows a renewed spirit of growth from that parting from once was deemed a true love. We never know what will happen when another door opens. It can be a blessing in disguise.

Vanita Thakkar on July 11, 2021:

These are beautiful expressions of a courageous soul. Nice messages of strength in your poems, Misbah. Thanks for sharing.

Take care. Stay healthy and happy. Blessings and best wishes to you.

EK Jadoon from Abbottabad Pakistan on July 11, 2021:

Salam Misbah,

I am late this time. But your poetry is fabulous. "Parting is sometimes a blessing in disguise", I agree with that. We can't realize. But after giving ourselves high doses of grief and regret, we come to know that it was for our own good. Thanks for sharing your thoughts. I hope everything is well with your health.

Stay safe and healthy...

Rozlin from UAE on July 11, 2021:

Glad to see you hubbing again, Misbah.

Rozlin from UAE on July 11, 2021:

Beautifully expressed poems, Misbah. Great response to Brenda's prompt. I liked your quotes too. You are right, parting is not so easy. It's a big commitment with our emotions. We are not able to admit it easily and become normal again. Thanks for sharing this hub. Glad to see Hubbing again. Blessings always to you dear sister.

Mohammad Yasir from India on July 11, 2021:

"I have no regrets

Because lived my life..."

Being free from any burden of the past like this is amazing and had been well put into words here.

No problem, Bredz. Take your time

Hugs!!

It can be hard to move past a relationship that you thought would last. Your poem is very good as it speaks of moving past without regret.

I think this is a good response to Brenda's prompt, Misbah.

Much love and blessings.

Misbah Sheikh (author) from The World of Rebels. on July 11, 2021:

Flourish, heartbreak is unpleasant but it is necessary. Because it allowed light to enter, so for me, it is a blessing.

Blessing and Love

Misbah Sheikh (author) from The World of Rebels. on July 11, 2021:

Chitra Di, I believe we write what we experience. Even though it is based on my own personal experience, It aided my development. Soul development and nourishment are never easy. Isn't it true that it takes a lot of effort?

Blessings and Much Love to you, Di

manatita44 from london on July 11, 2021:

Both well-written, emotive and carrying the light of experience. The second piece is stronger, more confident. Excellent work for which I salute you!

This woman adorned in silk and looking steadfastly at Mecca, is so powerful! I can write 500 pages of devotion just from this one photo.

"Eyes fixed on the Golden shores of the

Beyond (Allah). Letting go of all distractions,

The heroine marches along. Unwavering in

Devotion, her Heart fixed on Jannah;

Leaving behind this world of shadows." - Lantern Carrier

Yo te Quiero, mi Habibi

P.S Love is unconditional ... complete. Yet the God-man feels pain, as while we see darkness, he experiences only Delight.

John Hansen from Gondwana Land on July 11, 2021:

What wonderful poetry in response to Brenda's "regret" challenge. This was quite sad, but I loved every word, Misbah.

Dora Weithers from The Caribbean on July 11, 2021:

I like the corresponding messages in both poems. We cannot regret that we loved sincerely.It's the same love that bids us let go and free ourselves to love again. Pain is inevitable in the process of growth. Good work!

FlourishAnyway from USA on July 11, 2021:

Heartache is painful especially when raw and you capture it vividly here.

Chitrangada Sharan from New Delhi, India on July 11, 2021:

Hello Misbah!

A beautiful and heartfelt response to Brenda's word prompt! You have written some excellent quotes too!

I just hope, that it's not based on your personal experiences! Wish you all the best! Thank you for sharing!

Rosina S Khan on July 11, 2021:

Sometimes in life, we have to go through painful heartaches and yet by letting them go gracefully, we have nothing to regret and live life fully. Your poems boldly reflect these themes. I really loved reading them and they felt so real. Thank you, Misbah, for the wonderful share.

Peace Tobe Dike from Delta State, Nigeria. on July 11, 2021:

Misbah, this an amazing response to Brenda's prompt. I loved all your poems and I must agree that Brenda's weekly prompts has helped me become a better writer. It's not so difficult to put my thoughts to paper anymore.

And yeah it's nice to read something from you again after what felt like such a long time. I guess you're better now.

Well done!

Devika Primić from Dubrovnik, Croatia on July 11, 2021:

Beautiful write up. Poems that leave with a lot to ponder on here. Sometimes one has to let go to move on and create a new life.

Nian from Pakistan on July 11, 2021:

Beautiful poem and the quotes are amazing. I love your poem.

Many Blessings to You.
