The Reminder

You promised, heart of mine,

never again would that sun come up;

the palms wouldn’t sway to that song

and the butterflies shall remain tightly

shut in the glass jar.

You concluded, heart of mine,

melody and harmony hurt more than it


So, we’re better off without that

bittersweet music.

You learned, heart of mine,

symphonies and duets were beautiful only

when the sync was perfect.

One wrong note, one slip off key,

it risks becoming a disaster,

orchestrated or otherwise.

Leaving you, once again,

yearning for what once was –

the beautiful dream that metamorphosed

into a nightmare.
