Climbing the gates and watching the bare backs of cows nestled in the corners
Imagining the stars and the moon at night in bed while being too terrified to peep out of the window
Eating till the tummy is full and yet not telling mom for the food was a treat!
Obsession over junkfood, splitting into equal halves, joys of sibling rivalries
To be a child in a home which no longer exists, I long for the days gone by
It’s an ache in my heart to know, to accept its lost
But in memory
Tonight, as flashbacks visited me, I wasn’t prepared
Filled with anguish of what was, what could’ve been, there is a sense of loss in me
Something transient, irretrievable.
