There’s no saving from here, there’s no escape.
You don’t leave my mind while this heart feels an immense gape.
Did you know that your memories have a specific bling,
Like sprinkled sparkle on everything.
Gleaming and calling at me from all places,
When I am trying hard to not see you in other faces.
In bedside drawers and closed cupboards,
Lie our pictures and two slaughtered lovers.
Died who would have to keep with one another,
But promises after all are not that difficult to smother.
I am tired and yet I want to keep close,
Each memory strand and every single rose.
That binds us together in a parallel world.
Where I don’t sleep teary eyed with my body curled.
