Five months gone

It felt like forever

like I would never see your face again

Everything hurt - my memories, my thoughts,

every single thing that makes me think of you

Why am I this way?

Why can't I let you go?

It's not as if I haven't tried

But no matter how many days, months, years go by,

nothing changes, nothing slackens

Time cannot wash away the rushing tide of memories

You fill my mind

Oh, when will I see you again?

When, if ever, will you come back to me?
