Nostalgia

Nostalgia

A Poem by M.Kilani

I'm not a man of assumption
As I reached my redemption
Tired, broken and alone
I see horizon of every dawn 

But an answer mystique remains
What if this is all one gains
What if there's no more
Un-shut is the half-open door

And a heavy breath follows sighs
Hope of tomorrow slowly dies
As I drown in heartache and the loss of god
wandering and wandering to reveal the fraud

I seek an answer from her
Even if she's not there
Even if it was wrong
Silence follows a song

Everyone else found place to bury their dead dreams
'Beside the lake beneath the moon in the deep trees'
Oh I want to be there, I want us to be there
Casting our worries into the air

Or simply run away, simply to forget
Kisses I saved for her, which now I regret
Selective amnesia helps no more
The image is behind each opened door

Everything now is a reminder of her
Not as beautiful, not as fair
All beauty around is her defaced clone
Nostalgia awakes me until the dawn

Homelessness, solitude and insomnia
Heartache, pride and nostalgia
Horizon open before my eyes
Nostalgia for what I never had... beautiful lies

"What if this is all one gains / What if there's no more." I love the way that you expressed this because I think it must be a fear that nags at all of us. I had never thought about burying dead dreams before, but that's a wonderful line; just like people, we have to mourn them and put them to rest. And the last line, "nostalgia for what I never had," caught my attention most of all; it's something I can definitely relate to at the moment.

"And a heavy breath follows sighs

I really like this stanza. It says so much more than just the words that are there. I feel like there is a whole other story waiting to be told behind those lines.

I like the complete poem. The above lines are my favorite. Beautiful lies can lead us to good places that can turn cold very quickly. Thank you for sharing the excellent poetry.

the impassible distance between reality and what we thought we had. Happens more than many of us would care to 'fess up to. A lovely lonely poem

Your third stanza brought me inward to feel the heartbreak,
Your last stanza, is just so powerful.
