Heartbreak

Yashasvi Tickoo   

When you kissed me 

Under the flickering yellow light

I used to presume that it won’t last

But that day- it changed my mind

 

Day by day I fell a bit more

Like autumn leaves

Never did I anticipate a lie

I was too busy dreaming

 

But you walked away without a trace

I was a seasonal joy

Winter to spring to summer

Leaving an irreplaceable void

 

And now my shriveled hands

Grasp a broken, torn heart

Countless monsters and demons

They pull me apart

 

And now my mornings are filled

With the sun of a bitter truth

I sure do, wake up

But not next to you

 

I don’t know if it’ll stop eating me up

But you’ll stop being my ink

Now you’re number I won’t dial

Though it is on my fingertips

 

You will be a memory 

That breaks me to the end

Though I’ll wait and pray 

That you'll call me and make amends
