It is strange when
sometimes you want me to forget
to let go of the past
to unlearn all the memories
and scrape all the events
from my mind
without feeling any regret

You want to erase every
single moment in the time spent
so you can exorcise me
and let my soul heal for better
so the mourning finally stops
and the life can finally go on

When you try very hard
to stop this incessant
falling of tears
making those dry trails on my face,
so that I can live beyond that

Beyond that reflection
which is deeply etched in my
and refuses to part ways with me
and consumes me whole,

You try all your spells and totems
and all you magic potions to cure
me from this stigma of
unrequited love
but everything turns into dust
and fails miserably
when the exorcism fails
and I wanna stay in love
with my sorrow
and don’t wanna let it go.

      1. Actually you didn’t get me sad at all!
        I just found something with shares the same ideology as mine.
        How can that ever make anyone sad?!

      1. Yes I know and since my daughter is two she can’t express properly and we are here without any family support, you know how tiring it gets sometimes with work, home, kids. Kids are totally dependent on us with no grandparents around. Although in a way it’s good 😬

      2. I know sometimes you feel bad for kids here away from all the company they can get back home and sometimes it’s a relief away from all that family drama and politics 🥴
