A past that we can not let go.

The Apparition of You

I still see you in every corner, You were standing there with eyes glimming,

I still see you in every corner, You were standing there with eyes glimming, It sparkles as you look at me.

If it were before, I will be looking at the same way,

If it were before, I will be looking at the same way, The same loving way you give,

But that's just the shadow of today,

Now, I look at you with no emotions in my eyes; with the dullness and black holes apparent in them.

I look away as they start to form,

I look away as they start to form, "No. You can not. It has been years." I scold myself.

The glass, again, started to crack,

Even if it has been years, your ghost still appears to me.

The string that connects us is still entangled,

No matter how much I cut it with these scissors, I can not seem to pull them apart.

Or maybe because I don't have the strength to do so.

My tears poured.

I keep on telling myself that it is your apparition that binded me from the past,

I keep on telling myself that it is your apparition that binded me from the past, The prison that detached me from the present,

But how I kid myself. Maybe, I am that prison,

But how I kid myself. Maybe, I am that prison, I am the one who can't let go.

Maybe, afterall, I reversed the roles. I am the one giving dreamy looks, while you are the latter.

The apparition of you is nothing but my wish for the future,

A future I can't quite hold,

And the future that collapsed and will not unfold.
