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
is it being so difficult to say
a final goodbye
to the memories of the moments
related to him,
as it should not be?
