I came back,
To the memories.
The entry locked, but I didn’t mind.
Oh, to see you again in the faint
Memories that rest in my lips.
From all the bad.
The second day I met you,
Accidental, unpredicted, unseen.
Talking about life,
Music, interviewing each other’s smile.
Going for a walk,
To collect experiences that never in the past.
Your fingerprints still lie
In the skin you explored;
Tried to wash them with chemicals
But emotions get tattooed in permanent ink.
Two months later,
I wrote you a poem to understand
The feeling that overwhelmed my frontiers.
My space of mind,
Occupied by the intensity of love, lust, fear.
Never had I felt so anxious to control,
The world’s actions towards you.
I feared for your life,
From twelve to twelve.
I thought love was perhaps,
I knew someday I’d surrender,
Because the strength to hold us both,
Now that we said, bye,
I can’t avoid looking at the sky,
Damp, tinted, dark blue,
Remember how I called you on Valentine’s
And asked you to watch the sky
Full of stars.
Now, my gaze drifts to find only one.
Tears birth to the words:
“I don’t care if you tear me apart.”
Because I only see you in the night’s sky.
You are the only star.
So, will I sacrifice or wait for the clouds
To drift away and let me see,
A sky full of stars?
