Lover’s Lament

One who walked away without a convincing goodbye

Now desires to follow the footsteps through memory lane

Walking a purposeless path; imaginary communication with a silhouette

Spirit has long retired to a solitary place to contemplate a road ahead

Why meet someone for a rendezvous to recollect strewn feelings? 

Not many of them are there; withered and taken away by a storm 

Those paths have been expunged from the mind

Forgotten alleys forever plunged into a dark cover woven with laments

Across deserted garden, the dried roses may still carry memories between the petals

Redolent memories only survive in one corner of forgotten world

A traveler has gone too far and forgotten how to plan a reverse journey

Light shines from a different direction and eyes vision a new dimension©
