    Now that you are gone,
    The nostalgia is starting to seep in,
    Like the rings we wear on our delicate fingers,
    Which leave ineffable traces on our skin.

    And it won't let go now,
    This melancholia that has overwhelmed my soul;
    The blithe smiles, that were once etched upon my face
    Now feel like a mirage: of unsaid words and unheard pleas.

    I have seen infinite sunrises come and go;
    The breaking dawn, my eternal lover.
    But it's only now I see the shadows
    The burning heat, slicing my soul to ashes.

    My heart​ has always been paper thin;
    Catharsis, my incessant nemesis.
    The blood drips slow, but drip it does,
    Until scarlet specks are all that remain.

    And on these wintery nights,
    As the dust gathers on my doorsteps,
    I can hear the whispers of the gusts of wind,
    And count the teardrops that have fallen at my feet.

    The lonely walks I partake in,
    Along the cobbled paths and lacustrine plains,
    Carry me far away from my despondency,
    And show me new streets of contentment.

    It has taken me a while,
    But I have forgotten it all now;
    Your transient promises, dulcet cadence,
    Wisps of auburn hair dancing on hazel eyes.

    Or have I?
