Tangled in memories

Tangled in memories

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.
