Dedicated to the girl from my past.
I cannot coerce myself to loathe you,
It is supposed to be my proclivity,
Yet for an unknown reason, I can’t.
I wish I can overlook our tragic past
So we can remain as intimate friends;
For us to behold one another afresh
But, it does not maneuver that way.
For some obscured explanations
You opted to haunt me, sometimes,
When you seem to remember me,
Blithely reminiscing our euphoric past;
And whenever you do, these deep-
Seated memories I have of you keep
Rushing back just like unlocking
The covert arcane Pandora’s box.
You told me you yearned to see me,
But I can’t compel myself to see you.
Else these overwhelming emotion
That I have tried to forget all these
Years might threaten to resurface.
If only a day will come that we
Could be blissful without recalling
All those unpleasant memories.
However, even if we’re far apart
And doesn’t have frequent contact
You’ll always have a place in my heart.
