Poem: Flashbacks

Updated on October 5, 2016

When my soul meet yours-

my heart dribbles quickly.

I need to catch up my breath slowly

something flashed in a dash,

not knowing when it will last

my out of this world fantasies rushed

to my memory that almost crushed.

but suddenly flashbacks came

clearly as the sun rays

passing to my bewildered eyes

that soon began to care

I see you and me in our golden hours

sitting side by side

laughing as words from our lips glide

you treat me as a friend as I do

but my feelings betrayed me

like a sickness from a curse

I fall for you..

I love you sincerely..

until it drives me crazy

I tried to tell you

but you ignored it

I said, I can wait no matter what

but you refused strongly

and worst…

you tried to avoid me eagerly

as if, I am not existing

I cry bitterly

with wine as my shield

just to hide the stub ‘til I sleep

I insisted again

but answers from you

still a big question mark

answers that I’ve been longing since then

that can make my heartache fades

then suddenly…

a whack landed on my nape

hey! wake up!

images vanished in light

as my soul back

to my material body

then a sigh came….

when will my dream of me and you

will be real?
