September flowers

by Mahoobee
The clock ticks,
Its voice seems,
more lonely than my voice.
Coffee and a good book,
My constant companions in grief.

Walking through the lonely streets.
Cold hands in my pockets.
I listen to the sound of falling leaves.
Holding onto your names locket.
My friends in regret.

And then there's you,
Happy. Smiling and glowing.
And there's me,
Finding happiness in simple things.
Something I never did.

Coffee tastes bland.
My tongue has gone dry.
I ach to speak.
To converse.
But I don't try.

And then there's you,
Speaking with even more people.
And there's me,
Reading near the ducks,
Holding onto your necklace.

No matter where tomorrow leads.
I try to pick myself up from the wreckage.
And there's me,
I smile through showers.

And then, there's you,
Flying through colorful clouds.
And there's me
Learning to walk,
And wearing a tear stained frock.

The hour glass is empty.
Just like our hearts.
Empty for each other.
The clouds are dried.
No more showers.
No more scars.

Just like the September flowers,
Our feelings wilt.
And our hearts go dry.
And even when there's hope,
Somehow,
We don't try.
