Requiem for a chapter closed. The doctrine of unavailability.

04Nov05

choking on the air of life
drowning in the sea of time
i clutch at the straws of memories
going deeper in nostalgic brine
my lungs collapsed
i speak no more
my eyes are closed
i see no more
of you.

you’re not there
but you
live on, day in day out
in thoughts, in dreams
within without

you are, to me
the first cool breeze in monsoon heat
the smell of rain on dusty leaves
just as you were
seonds ago

eons ago

you’re not there
but you
live on, day in day out
in thoughts, in dreams
within without

you loved to live
and i loved to watch you breathe

take that from me if you can.
