Sudden Reminders That Agonize the Heart

I’m busy with my work

And all of a sudden

My body muscles contract

An abrupt nanosecond’s thought of you arise out of nowhere

Take me down the memory lane.

And I go weak in the knees.

I shrug, my hands begin to tremble.

Just a second ago I was all good, normal!

But look at me now

All lost, all mad.

Thinking of the past, the happy past

Of how I used to be in your arms

Warm under your skin.

Those pink lips knock the doors of my mind.

Your scent is suddenly felt by my nose.

For that second I feel us hugging.

That one moment brings about a trillion memories to life.

And I lose all my senses .

My happiness is seen in the eyes.

While my lips curl into a smile.
The next second I fantasise us,

Together, holding each other’s hands.

Sitting on a rooftop, waiting for the sun to rise.

Planting kisses on the face,

Living a life full of hopes and solace.

Ow, my stomach begins to ache

As soon as the reality take over my mind 

In the next half of that moment.

And I’m all shattered, teary-eyed once again.

Back into the ekht world.

Cursing everything and everyone

For what I feel in the other second.

I realise it’s no longer true

Those times have passed

And could never be re-lived.

I feel abandoned, hopeless

Perplexed and irritated.

Oh! It’s just the third second, 

And I’m already soaked 

In the oceans of emotions.
It’s just three seconds

And I’ve gone through every single moment we shared.

Now I look at my surroundings

Yell at mind to return to complete reality.

My muscles flex, totally

Relieving me of that stress.

‘Back on the track’, I say

And continue to work with a diminished efficiency

Yet my heart sinks in that sea of disappointment 

And denies to face the actuality.

EUPHONIAC⭐️
