He says, Years have passed
Have they, love ?
I would still break into tears
If you hold me
Would you wipe them away
Like that day though?
Would you hug me tight,
trembling hands buried in my hair
And let your sigh at the nape of my neck
Or this time will you let go and cry?
He says years have passed
But after all these years the moment hasn’t
It’s frozen where our lips last met
Immune to the whims of time and space
Every time we think of each other
We are still locked in that embrace
Darling, we never finished saying our goodbyes
I wish I could hijack time
And hasten it along the curves of the clock
Grab my wings from the depth of its paunch
I wish I could stoke my heart
And flare up the kindling passion
That warms my breath
In the coldest of my night
I wish I could let it go
And let you see,
Be selfindulgent enough to ask you to wait
Even when I dont know
How long it takes,
How long does it take for the heart
To sync its beats?
How long does it take for nightmares
To turn into dreams?
How long does it take for feathers
To grow on scalded wings?
But how can I ask you to wait
When you have already mapped your footsteps?
How can I ask you to love me again
When you have already started to forget?
I can only keep walking
Along the curves of the clock
Hoping it leads to where our orbit intertwine
