​Bittersweet Memories

Memories that I wanna get rid of, doesn’t stop chasing me…
My heart wants to replay those memories forever
Coz they’re sweet and worth recalling…
But is always battling with the mind, that doesn’t want even the slightest trace of those memories lingering within me…
For, at the same time, those memories make me cry and feel woeful.
Scarcely I can see, and understand the things happening around me
Because of all that is going on inside me…

I realised something.
It isn’t easy to convince the heart to be content without having its desires being fulfilled.
The desire, to reminisce those memories,
The desire, to savour them…
The desire, to dwell in them…
The desire, to shed some tears…
That comes along with them as a complement.

I realised that,
It is still tougher to get my mind accustomed to them…
They plunge into my mind without my wilful consent.
At times, they’ve taken hold of my contentment,
But also have become a reason to smile,
When I had the gloomiest days of my life…!

I realised that,
Memories are immortal…
Memories are redolent…
Memories are bittersweet…
