It was just going to be a painful continuation of the months prior
Of brimming doubt and self pity
Of endless nights and long days
Of dark shadows and nightmares.
It was five days into December
When things took a turn.
I wont lie, I did resist.
Did it work? Hardly a week,
May be two?
Someone just walked into my Winter
Slow at first, like the summer rains,
Its probably a dream till date,
One I never wish to wake up from.
It changed about everything that I thought I knew
About me, about pain, about life.
I saw sunshine and rainbows, would have named
Unicorns too, if I wasn't in my mid twenties.
It burned away reality, redefined it,
Made me stare at sunsets,
Crave for chocolate ice cream?
Days when a yellow leaf amazed me for hours.
I remember every single exchange
For a month every song I heard was about those eyes,
Hoping that what's meant to be, will be.
Realising I didn't need ages to replace what I gave away.
It's a long wait, and its okay.
