Let it be

Let it be, for it is not yours to start with.
Let it be, for you are not alone.
Let it be, for you do not understand.
Let it be, for we were never there.
Let it be, for it is how ’twas meant to be.
Let it be.

Blackness in the air and people with their hearts pulled out. Fetid odour lingering in the air like a black shroud. Fear was lurking in everybody’s face. One stepped in and stepped out in equal time. The scene of a close friend no longer possible was too much for them to bear. Kith n kin lay outside unable to grasp time. Friends were long gone in time, memories playing out in each one’s mind.

What was the last time he spoke?
What was the last time he smiled?
What did he look like?

And then

Why did he do this?

-Me, myself and all the people I know.

  1. Slow dance ….
    Slow romance …
    Stars aren’t favoring it,
    Spasmodic nostalgia
    Is inciting it?

    Slow sunset ….
    Slow subset ….
    Of emotions,
    Harbored in the safe corner
    Finding a leakage vent ….

    Slow stasis ….
    Slow pain …..
    Of limbs
    Bones
    And nerves,
    Giving way ….
    …………………….
    To my favorite mistake ….
