continue to simmer


I glisten like humidity on windows
of brazen memories of not so long ago
and you look through that glass into the night,
presence of my ghost lingering behind
as moonlight shines and stars above you shimmer

I continue to simmer.

——————————————————-

this is a poem from so long i don’t care to remember. it was a scribble on a notepad some solitary evening. about Y, of course. i dedicated few poems to X. it was Y that i loved.

and now, here we are: Y has just gotten engaged. the status flashed up as the first notification on my facebook homepage. c’est la vie and i don’t regret it. so long the finger isn’t mine, he can put all the rings on it he wants.

i don’t need a cage, just love, like nectar, flowing freely.
so give me love!

  3. lovely. :) sometimes the best poems are written when we arent really concentrating and it is just an element of our subconscious. Oh dear… facebook has a lot to answer for with these ex lover statuses and photos and so on. :-/

  4. i agree :)
    poems must be written with feeling. otherwise, they are just words on paper (or computer screen) :D xx
