Yesterday, today, tomorrow

We never mangaged
The motions of goodbye well
You were busy with
New beginnings
I was busy
Reminiscing, savouring
The bitter aftertaste
Wallowing, almost

The lose strands
(Like your hair
On those rare days
You’d let them be)
Oh well, they’ll haunt
They always do

I was born dramatizing
You liked to say
(Am I still obsessed with
What you liked to say?)
Not today

Today it’s time
To rest the past,
In all its troubled glory
Okay, that’s a little
Over the top

But seriously
Tomorrow I want to forget
That I want to forget
(Forget) even this obsession
With moving on
Which holds me back
Into today

    1. I don’t need to condone/condemn other person’s drug addiction/alcoholism. I don’t. It’s not for me to decide how others lead/waste their lives. Yes I will still like their work.

    2. Lata mangeshkar is rumoured to have slept with a some of her music directors. Would you hate her singing because of that? The sad part is in the word of media it’s hard to get a break. Again, one can judge the work despite of how one got a chance. And I’m interested in the work.

    regards,
    asuph
