Lost Forever

The door was ajar
I saw the light
I wriggled my neck through
then gave up the fight

Like a frail shadow
she stood there, unmindful
I soaked in her presence
till the last breath was full

A fading light, she was
sneaking through the slit
of my dead longing eyes
only to die before they meet

I know memories can't run
neither the moon will fade
nor will be lost in the blazing sun
everyday it will cut me like a blade

Memories keep coming back, and when it is about something/someone we once beheld and had to let go, it definitely cuts like a blade. It hurts. We may wish to cry, we may wish to seek it again but all those desires are futile as we may never be able to bring back those days.

Wonderful ... looks like memories came looking for you through the slit of the door. Keep pulling them out ... and relate them with your verses.

Loved reading this!
