There once was someone I admired
Who stood by my side
In times of all, with no hesitation
There never was doubt
To take which road, despite
The many crisscrosses encountered.
Gone are those days
Of assurance and confidence
As I look in the mirror to see none.
Little by little she left my side
Her departure was never sudden
Only I failed to realize the transition
From the cheerful girl to the distressed woman
Changes someone else not aware of
But glaring at me, grueling my soul,
Questioning my integrity,
Faded into the oblivion,
A mystery of sorts,
Tearing my being,
Leaving behind a body,
a cloak, or a mere shadow.
I want to go back to who I was
Staring into the nothingness I long
A nostalgia hence born!
