what we lose along the way

back then

a sandpit was your oasis
a dirt road, your wild west
an old tyre, the 4x4 you would use to cross the world

now you have
your island holidays
your flashy cars
your shiny new toys

your things.

now you've bought your dreams-come-true
but really. you've sold [out on] the dream.

the things they'll never see

You saw Me when I couldn't.

My sight is clear now,
so let me show you You.

the memento

he still remembered every detail
the way the water looked
the way the trees tilted in the slight summer breeze
the way, for once, even the hoards of tourists didn't vex her
the way those books smelt.
and now he's alone. but the memory still takes him there.
when the waters move
when the trees dance
when the tourists laugh. and their cameras flash.
when he falls upon a random page
and the scent is like a portkey back

She hesitated there, unsure if she could go on.
You stood silently behind, watched her battle the fear. And when the victory came, it was all you could do not to follow.

I'm not attached to you.

I'm just attached
to your attachment to me.
