Memories Overwhelm

A mist of dreams always follow,

Filling up my heart so hollow,

Traversing across unknown realms,

While I lay in a peaceful trance,

Wishing upon that one lost chance,

Should I let the memories helm?

Westerly winds take me away,

And disperse all the sobriquet,

Should I hide when time overwhelms?

  1. Beautifully penned poem. The last line is essentially a question many of us will ask ourselves, at one point of time or the other – "Should I hide when time overwhelms?" Classy line 🙂

  2. It is so beautiful and romantic and sad. My mind went to a romance that did not work but one can interpret it in so many ways-so etherial. I love it
