Vain Longing

7

A bleak midwinters night got me staring at the pale ceiling of my store
Making me nostalgic, nostalgic about the feelings that I once bore
The feelings that came back like waves gushing at the shore
The feelings that could hurt as much as broken glass on the floor
The feelings that were embedded deep inside of me, within the core
The feelings that I kept to myself because I wasn’t completely sure
The feelings that made my body, my heart, my soul go sore
The feelings that every now and then, come to life just to remind me
Maybe, I’m still longing for more…
