Flitted Emotions

Like Travelling on a road knowing the 'detour' sign ahead we kept moving.
 Like a couple doing a waltz To an abruptly ended song We held onto each other.
 Like a starving mortal awaiting a piece of food I craved for your love.
 Like a drunken man unaware of his situation I tolerated everything from you.
 Like an echo bouncing once then getting lost in the air My words came but went unheard.
 Like a beaten soldier Returning from war I walked away from your doorstep.
 Like ghosts occupying a house After its inhabitants leave Your presence kept me company.
 Like a rose torn petal by petal Then blown by the wind My tortured wait ended in vain.
 Like falling from 90 feet & still undead Your image still lingers in my head.
 Like sustaining silence After the music had ended
My empty life continued.

The image of this was particularly striking..and strong..

"Like a beaten soldier
Returning from war
I walked away from your doorstep."

Is this reality of imagination?

I meant whether this poem was written due to a real experience or it was a part of your imagination.
