A Year After You - Poem by John Paul Ang
A year after you and everything seemed so fine
The tears shed all those time was all mine
I want to blame you for everything that had been
And for all the deception and lies i've seen.
The memories of a past that i long to forget
are all filled with subtleties and regrets
All those thoughts that i want to erase
remnants of a glorious love fallen from grace
Somehow i still seek your touch, i seek your taste
Reminiscing the times we spent on that special place
Somewhere where time does not pass or flow
A piece of space wrapped in a warm ambient glow
It felt like nothing on earth will supersede
the honest and pure emotions you received
Neither heaven nor Hell could grasp my sympathy
While i exist through this prevalent insanity
A year of constant illusion and depravity
I must admit, nothing is really fine in this fake reality
Born out of hate, from 365 days of anger
Rage that will constantly linger.
A year after you, A lifetime behind me
I don't desire to look forward and set myself free
For i have lived in my past for too long
I dare to bind myself to that promise, even if it's wrong.
..But i will not completely close this heart
It may still be possible for a new start
I just wish that someday i could wake up
and forget this false life i made up.
A year after you
All my dreams made untrue
A year after you
To try and forget you, i will surely do.
