It wasn’t so humorous
When all I see is your silhouette
Taking careful steps towards my reach
Each stride reminded me of pauses
Like that of an unfinished note, the ellipsis;
You came into my fastidious life
Like the congregating soft rain in August
On a quest to soothe my towering pain
You vowed and strained all the way
To bring the distant sunshine to my face
How can I forget you?
How can I not remember you who ploughed my garden?
You who planted seeds in me that never sprouted
How can I forget the hands that closed my doors?
How can I not remember that stormy day too?
For sure, we fought well
We loved hard, we did, but
The cracks in our hearts gave way…
No such memory would go away…
