Estrangement - Poem by Angarag Sandilya

Said you saw me,  
Walking the mirror maze
Did the reflections summon,  
Did they ask you to stay?  
Thought it was meant to be,  
Begging me, to set you free.
Habits die hard, so does a memory.
Wouldn't I remember,
The last evening together,  
Sat apart, on the porch,  
Smell of alyssum, in the air,  
Wondered if we could endeavor,  
Lookin' into those oceans within,  
Feel your face glow bright,  
In the candlelight.
Eyes were locked, so were lips,  
Wiping tears, off your cheek,  
Merely diving too deep.
With a yearning for more,  
You reached for the door.
Should I have called your name,  
Love would have breathed again.
Now, just a dream too vague,  
Forked paths, no turnin' back.
As for the things, left to give,  
Ain't talking about ‘em,
But letting you live…
