I detested her presence,
And erased all her lingering essence,
Pushed away the reveries,
Shoved all the beautiful memories.
And after the ardent toil,
And battling with heart’s embroil,
I did a final search,
Doubting every possible lurch.
And to my dismay,
I found impressions of her name,
Casted on my mind like a permanent frame,
I tried hard to,
erase it all,
But when I failed,
I forced it to stall,
I wrapped my thoughts in a burning flame,
And from that moment,
things started to change.
Her shadow got dissolved,
And her image from my mind were finally absolved,
My mind was free from her humming sound,
And I was happy i found my newfound ground.
But when I was about to set free,
She appeared without any decree,
The wraps were gone,
The flames got doused,
Layer after layer,
She gently roused.
You could erase thoughts and assume victory,
But when the soul was consumed,
The heart would always be an open confetti.
