Playing games with my mind? Huh! By resurfacing the old memories When you least expect them to Glimpses of the past erupt from nowhere Like a replay of old records spread everywhere Meddling with my thoughts with clear intention? Trying to evoke emotions deeply seated at the back You let such glimpses take a pause Forcing me to travel back in time Down the memory lane with bitterness once found Lane where I never wish to pause again Then why do these flashes go on and off? I left way behind the lane I never want to pause For it led me to a destination unprepared for Lane of disloyalty, cheating, and mistrust are few to name Reputation to be bad was loudly known How foolish could I be to reach such a lane Left wondering where were I? Where did I reach? Have I lost myself? Questions were many but no one to answer Like a pop up in my mind, I see faded visuals once known Visual such as I wish to forget Why do you play with me? I know! Playing some dirty tricks to get my reactions? Making fool of yourself For you force me to pause, yet I decide to let go of the fleeting thoughts Don’t hold let it go I say As fleeting as everything around Let me not pause to relive The pain, the mental trauma so deep Let me not pause to relive moments of false togetherness Let the blowing winds carry away The glimpses to let it reach where it belongs Past may rest in past That is the way to go ahead Let me find my way back Relook, recollect, restart and relive once more To cherish the beauty of life once lost
