Tangled in memories
In the melancholy of the night,
under the taunting moonlight,
memories of you come gliding
effortlessly through my mind’s guarded doors,
shattering what little resistance i can offer.
Moments with you imprinted in my mind,
like fluffy clouds caressing the sky,
floating in a seemingly endless array,
as roughly patched up wounds deep inside
ooze blood tinged tears,
staining pillows that have never yet fully dried.
You vowed to be my shadow
and you left me alone in the dark,
when i could no longer reflect the light of your dreams,
while i woke up on countless new dawns
pondering over pieces of my broken heart,
attempting to assemble it whole.
And as this night wanes
at the behest of sun’s rays,
I too wish to greet the world with a smile
and look at the newly bloomed buds,
but the wily wind keeps on whispering
that i have not wept long enough
over the memories you have left behind.
