The Lonely August (Aug 1)

It's been two years
since the pen began to touch paper.
Every now and then,
I read what I did
and remember all those things.

I try not to shed tears.

This lonely August will not be as lonely
as the one I had two years ago.
Because back then I didn't have a soul,
as I deluded myself saying
that she had taken it all.

Now, my soul is as close as it can be.
And hopefully, my body.

Welcome to The Lonely August. Two years ago, I began my first Words A Day project (around Aug 14th, I guess), and continued writing until I abruptly ended the whole thing on March 2010. Now, I pay my respects by naming this month in the same manner as two years ago. Enjoy.
