Closing Curtains - Poem by Pamuditha Zen Anjana

I'm picturing a past state
another road to my lost fate
add another nail to the coffin
it's my last date

Heart races
through the blurry faces
Mind spaces out
through those lost pages

So I, loved you
Outlived you
Tried blending in
Ended up bending back
Bleeding and clutching
The misguided heart

And I, used to trim my chances
re-imagine my own dreams
after all I was MIA
in the Suns golden rays

Then I, hated you
Outwitted you
After you ripped me
part by part
Beautifully apart

Yet I, tried to keep it all in
even went out of my way
to direct a hollow life
just like a well scripted lie

But they say it's not right
to fight in days like these
plus the stage is closed
and its no man's land again…
