#FarYetNear

Every breath I take, every move I make

Resonates with memories of you

Captured in my heart, unable to tear apart

Opening floodgates, controlling which all my will they take

 

Like a thread passing through a needle

Your absence cuts through me

Dragging me to the abyss of darkness

As I stitch memories with its color

 

With thoughts lingering in my head for a while

At the same time, I cry and manage to smile

The abandoned pillow, those creased sheets

Stare back at me as if helping me cross that mile

 

Alien to my own self and thoughts

With silence screaming back at me

Trying to jolt me back to where I am

My response being unscathed calm

 

Your voice is that gentle humming song

That plays in my head,

Being my rock on the path I tread

Assuring we won’t be away for long.

#LostInOblivion

Shadows In the Mirror

In the mirror, I can see

The eyes of a stranger staring back at me

Soulless, vacant and lost

Searching for the place where all the smiles and happiness were tossed

 

In the darkness sublime, I grope the walls

Looking for the bygone joy, among pitfalls

If only I could pretend

Pushing away realities and making assumptions end

 

I wish I had a heart of stone

With neither memories or emotions to atone

Blissfully ignoring the obvious

Remaining carefree and callous

 

Her face seems familiar

But her eyes are that of a stranger

All I can ask her is a question

Who are you and where did I go?
