I still write you letters,
Within me, confined,
Rattling with you incessantly,
Over and over in my mind.
Securing every bit of what remained,
Unscathed in my soul,
Lest they elude me too,
Pretty much like you.
You see the new companion I have made,
Out of sheer imagination about you in my head,
Is my confidant now,
For, I am learning to let go off you anyhow.
My new mate never tries caging love,
With the shackles of time and space,
He knows love is fathomless,
With its own mysterious ways.
Today, while you dwell with your significant other for real,
I am better off in my make-believe world with you,
Sadly the seed we had sowed together once,
Needed to be pulled out when it grew.
