Revisiting Past


Myths about the memory lane
with delusions get belied

Where expectation is opposing
and to stark reality misapplied

As if spell caught in a vortex
and one's life has moved along

Though part of past existence
where anymore you don't belong

Earlier memories are hurtful,
as all old ties have since gone

No point in grieving time lost
and let all bygones be bygone

Victuals those earlier fancied,
at times lose genuine allure

If prove at present palatable,
one gets confusingly unsure

The tongue though familiar,
but extreme of it does daunt

As if to scorn the evolution
and your sane feelings haunt

Just focus on the nucleus
try not to search beyond

Bitter truth can prove cruel
to now if doesn't correspond
