Memory - Poem by Ayadh Farooq

Tears keep flowing down my cheek
Large droplets
and they disappear
Under my chin and forever gone
like my own life and time...

Then one such droplet
lingers on
so stubborn
not willing to let go
Like a memory in my mind
destined to remain forever

The mordant taste of the saline
albeit in unpleasant moments
feels so sweet
While pain remains it brings
more reminiscences of good times
a respite; although brief
in the sadness of one's life
