Old Time’s Sake | Poem

Old Time's sake (Poem)

My shattered faith, my weakened trust,

Your hopeful promises have all started to rust,

It has to destroy itself, slowly, but it must.

 We fought, I lost, you proved you are the strongest.


Maybe things just have to end,

when there is nothing left to mend.

I just wish you could have let me know,

That you would be gone before December ends.


It becomes a problem when,

It’s 2 A.M. and all I think of is us,

So my solace becomes this pen,

And I write stories to create an illusion.


My friends tell me you are toxic,

That all this is just a hoax, a lie,

A trap, an option, a trial period perhaps,

Ah! The transiency of mortal traps.


Hey boy listen, I am complete madness,

And all of this is measurably endless.

Think twice before you step in,

And with the utmost certitude, step in.


Let’s leave this empire behind,

We will start again, you the prince,

I, your princess and we will move forward,

Fearless, fiercely and boldly we shall stand.


Just tag along with me, we can run, we can walk,

we can fly, anything to stop this never-stopping clock,

I promise, we can change the inevitable end,

Just hold my hand and we will make time stop. 


Alas! There is no “we”, my soul lamented,

Star-crossed-lovers sweetheart, it was fated,

Mistakes, flaws and frightening passion were predestined,

One glitch in our code and havoc was created.


Maybe another time, we will have a story,

A Shakespearean romance, a fairy tale.

This infinite love is not ours to take,

Another time, maybe for old time’s sake.
