Nostalgic Self

#PoetryParlour #AZatPP# day14#N


Somethings remains,

Inked in your heart,

That has jolted you,

Somehow, somewhere-

It stays with you,

As a balm or a pain,

And becomes something,

Called nostalgia.


Your nostalgic self,

Rejoices and grieves,

Pines and screams,

May be for that lost love,

First kiss,

Or your native land.

A sweet pain,

Engulfs your being,

As an old picture, a similar place,

A known person or an used thing,

Makes you reconstruct ,

Those events again,

In your brain.


Nostalgia reminds you,

From time to time,

That those sweet nothings,

Those crushed dreams,

Those life changing decisions,

Or your silent screams

All has become a part,

Of your present self.

You have lived life,

For better or worse,

But you must come to terms,

With your evolved self.



What do you think?
