Melancholic evenings

With evening comes melancholy , barefoot and unannounced ; cloaked in a reddish yellow tinge of dawn. It snatches away all mirth and stares at you while you sulk and frown.

Permeating your heart , like in winters through the trees you see the mist seep , until from every corner of your mind the old memories creep.

It keeps record of everything you best thought to forget , opening one after another like chapters in a booklet.

Bringing you the best ones first , the moments that make you smile with joy ; not knowing it's your enemy in guise you give in to it's deceitful ploy.

And soon it makes you realize that the people you love have gone , you can see them no more. You tell everybody how they still carry on living in your heart while in truth there is nothing but a sore. 

The ones who are living are not the same anymore ; unfortunately the moments spent with them are etched in your heart like an old folklore.

    Deeply emotional and sad poem. Maybe the presence of good friends helps when that happens. Thank you for it. G.

    I really love the imagery in this. You've managed to bring warmth and depth to this darkness you describe. Very haunting.
