It’s been a while since we last spoke
And I met your gaze with the same
I’m sorry it’s taken me this long to meet you.
On this lonely, September night.
But I can’t stop thinking about our past,
And I can’t stop thinking where you’ve been.
Remember when we were inseparable?
Remember when you’d bring my soul serenity
With just a lift of your finger
Tapping my heart and releasing words of pure emotions, wrapped in our contemplations
Of the world.
Do you remember spending everyday together?
Engulfed in our thoughts and vision of the world
We’d paint the sky in luminosity
And move the wind in our direction.
We held hands for most of our lives and
Vowed to never let go.
And here I stand today.
Facing the mirror
Looking deeper, searching, screaming,
The way we’d make art of our war.
Sketching our pain into,
Planting pencil drawn flowers on our bruises
Hiding away the pain in mesmerizing drawings
Of what we thought life would be
Mastering precision of following the heart beat.
And as I search deep down,
I look for recollections of it.
Somewhere, buried beneath, hoping to find it.
A slight reflection in the window
A small glance from the corner of my eye
A faint smile passing by
As I reminisce the museum of moments we created.
