Cup Of Nostalgia

often pained and hurt
rumbling in the store
amidst pile of dirt

photographs black and worn
the voices, I hate and yearn
in neon, a shadow of me
breaking the shackles, flying to be free

those were the days when I cried and smiled
minutes trickled by, hours had lied
whom to trust, what not to believe
life had taught me no longer to crib

I was weak and strong
and tired yet unbound
reaching for the stars
I am here, never to depart

moments, my friend
are poetry that I paint
to be read, and re-read in my comfort area
I hereby sip my favourite cup of nostalgia
