Poem: Flashbacks

Updated on June 27, 2018

When my soul met yours-

my heart dribbles quickly.

I need to catch up my breath slowly

then something flashed in a dash,

not knowing when it will last.

My out of this world fantasies rushed

to my memory that almost crushed.

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.


a whack landed on my nape.

hey! wake up!

images vanished in light

as my soul back

to my body

then a sigh came….

when will my dream of me and you

will be real?
