Closing my eyes melts away the miles
I dance to your whispers and swirl to your smiles.
Closing my eyes takes me back to those times
When I’d stay awake till three and write you stupid rhymes.
Closing my eyes makes your absence less bitter
It makes me realize why I’m still stuck to you like glitter.
Closing my eyes makes me feel again the love which transgressed all seasons
And made me turn all your excuses into genuine reasons.
But then comes a point when I’m unable to ignore
The cacophony growing more and more
Of your screaming silence,
My voiceless cries.
And so, I get up
Open my eyes.
