Silent Ode to Your Memory

By Preetty Chambugong Marak 

Suddenly I felt your presence

Just like how we use to be together before

You would call my name and sing songs for me

We would laugh together at made up jokes

Suddenly I felt your presence

Just how beaming we were together before

You would prepare coffee along with snacks

We would eat together at cafes and shops

How we used to share every tiny bit of food

Suddenly I felt your presence

Just like the day you left me behind

You said things that were unpleasant and erratic

We were just angry and resentful at each other

We were at the edge of being torn apart

Suddenly I felt your presence

Just how I shed a tear striving to be strong

Desiderate that you would look back

Hoping that you would just come back as I wail

And wishing for all this, to be just a nightmare!
