Roses and coffee

06 Jan

  shuffling
the story of life
an interesting journey
you meet and need
you find you lose
 
the first chapter
leads me on
it’s a captivating read
then i shut it close
 
i don’t want to know the end
what if my favorite character say, dies?
gasp!
I’ll leave it on the shelf
 
 
intriguing read
i pick and begin
some left and were gone
some left and stayed
 
 
the main character
captivates me to keep reading
then suddenly i put it back again
i don’t want to know
 
 
some memories ought to live on
some desires ought to be fanned
but amnesia differentiates
between the good and the bad
 
 
i take the book
there is a bookmark
i open it
it’s a chapter about me
 
 
how did he know?
the facts are right
the truths taunting
wait, he lived that part
 
 
i slowly close it
it’s the familiar smell of coffee
he hands me the mug
and a rose
 
 
it’s been a while
i get lost in the memories…
of a darker time
and my eyes cloud
i shut it close
take out a match
hesitate for a while 
then i light it up
the flames light up
i try to salvage it
but the tongues of fire burn
so i decide to let it go 
before i get burned
