Amazing how time flies
Decades have gone by since you last said “hi”
But I’m here wondering why
What went wrong? I thought we were strong
The unbreakable bond could not hold for long

Since the goodbye, I have heard no news;
Not even a lie from the ones around you!
But I’m still hanging on,
hoping;
as courage from nowhere keeps me by the window

I wish I knew your current address
If you must know, my heart is not at rest
For old times’ sake,
give me an access!
Needless to say how I need it in excess

Maybe once I was bold,
Since you left, I’ve grown cold;
I might be gold but without you I have no mould
Where shall I find you? Where should I turn?
What else defines you, if not my tongue?

Sorry you were meek and I took it for weakness
All the while I was swift, you were my fitness
Let’s forget about the world and just focus on ourselves
I dropped the mirror;
and finished talking to myself.

“I dropped the mirror; and finished talking to myself”, damn that punch-line! Self reflection is necessary! Thanks for this beautiful piece!
