Corrupted

I have come a long way,
It is already a thing of the past,
You are someone I knew once,
So why does it ache even now?


My mind is clouded,
corrupted by thoughts of you,
Help me, oh savior!
Sail me through
***
My heart is broken
down to tiny fragments,
irreplaceable, irrevocable,
All because of that one look.
***
I have come a long way,
It is already a thing of the past,
You are someone I knew once,
So why does it ache even now?
***
But now I am trying to move on,
Adjusting to the new rhythm and rhymes,
Not letting words fool or soothe me,
Hiding from everyone the tears, that swallow my smiles
***
No! I won’t cry myself to sleep, or tire myself
Over the thoughts of what ifs and could have beens,
All the roads seem to converge only to this reality,
Then why do I still end up writing only about you, about us, about this?

Sometimes forgetting is a lot harder than forgiving… The more you want to forget, the harder it becomes…

  1. A beautiful heart felt piece. Your heroine’s pain dripped onto the page. And as much as she would like to label this person as “You are someone I knew once knew.” the pain and memories remain. so happy to peek into my email and find this notification. Be well my friend.

  2. I like this a lot. I think it is very relateable. I am officially calling you a poet. 🙂
    You write poetry right? Nice to meet you. Thanks for the Like!

  3. Back to your style, and with a bang! Nice one.. Relating the narration to what I have seen, forgetting isn’t possible actually.. Limiting the person to lonely imaginations is all one can actually end up doing…
