This poem was written almost two years ago and was posted in my other blog. I decided to move a few poems from one blog to another as it is more appropriate to be posted here.
Pieces of you appear in unexpected places,
phantom memories of confusing moments
that today would be hard to explain.
Electronic pixels of my idea of you as plain
as the letters reflected in my torment
and written with your essence and traces.
Later as I succumbed to my isolation
I couldn’t recall details of our last encounter.
Your name became blurred among others
and I became entangled with another’s
as I continued searching and encountered
another one that took me into temptation.
Not easy at first to refrain from calling you,
my tongue became accustomed to the sound
of the three letters that made you real.
When my body longed to yours be near
and my mouth your name tried to pronounce,
I bit my lips and told myself what I already knew,
that you never were mine and never will
and your dreams I was never meant to fulfill.
Today, your unknown whereabouts makes me sad
as I clearly understand you won’t be back.
Not the same sadness I felt before
for I now hold you in non-existence,
and memories fade without much resistance
while your name in my lips will not be more.
