The Head and the Heart
The Kathmandu Post, October 19, 2013
You give me reasons. Tell me why I shouldn’t feel the way I do. But my body doesn’t listen. It still strains and shivers every time I hear your voice. It still trembles and retreats into itself whenever I think of you with someone else. My brain tell me to be quiet, it tells me to let go but I seem forever locked in that chill. It pierces me like a cold, sharp, shard. And yet, you speak so callously, because you can. You’re the one who’s let go and once you let go, its always easier looking back. Because its always easier to say goodbye when there’s someplace else you need to be. Love and desire are always easier for those who already have it. I hope one day you’ll realise, like I have, just what it was we lost.
