His smile flashes in my mind. 

Immediately, tears built up in my eyes

though I do not cry. 

My heart aches and yearns 

for his forbidden presence.


I have bid goodbye to him

but how do I see off his memories?

How to stop myself from indulging

myself in them involuntarily?


How beautiful it would be

if I erase these moments selectively

from my memories

that I do not wish to delve deep in?


This connection was utterly strange 

because it was not love by any way

Then, why

is it being so difficult to say

a final goodbye

to the memories of the moments 

related to him,

as it should not be?


Hard To Say Goodbye
