it has been a minute

it has been a minute

since the last few people that understood were in the room

since the laughters that filled echoed off the walls in my afternoons

since the moments of enlightenment tore away the gloom

since i was in between maybe & soon.

it has been a minute

since the team of dozen got reduced to a one way chess game

since i remember how to feel the rain

since the silence drove me insane

since i remember how to not remember the pain

it has been a minute

since the curtains closed and there has been no distinction between night and day

since there were still words left to salvage

since there was a goan april & a sunny may

since i prayed

it has been a minute

since we were in embrace

since i saw and believed those eyes

since i stayed up, up all night

since i relapsed on, on her smile
