Past –Unforgotten


Forget him, I absolutely cannot Ma

It isn’t so easy that I would be able to do it in a Voila!!

What seems wrong today, wasn’t so yesterday

You cannot sit on judgement on life’s ways

Life cannot be always a bed of roses

One cannot get everything that one chooses

I had to stumble, I had to fall

To learn life’s lessons, from this past treason

I know I am getting married tomorrow

I will erase all animate traces of my past

From today onwards I have left my mind fallow

That has withstood deceit so callow

I will not let my past destroy my future

Any gaping hole in my heart I will painfully suture

No matter how difficult the road ahead looks to me, I‘ll endure

I have always embarked on unchartered destinations

Without an iota of hesitation

Like a phoenix I will arise and plod ahead unbidden

I have become adept at weaving myriad hued rainbows

From looming nimbus cloud

My dazzling smile tomorrow all pain will shroud

I will sweat out all thoughts of him from my every pore

But chisel those memories out completely from my soul; well I am not so sure

Tomorrow clad in my red Benarasi, sandal paste and jasmine flowers

I will dethrone him from my heart’s bower

Time might heal all the pain and heartbreak I endured

But time can never cure the anguish of erasing my love that was so pure
