Fettered Memories!

Somewhere in the deep crevices of my heart

percolating through the filters of thoughts, are scars hiding.

Though inconspicuous, they linger on, haunting me.

At the slightest trigger,  they elicit painful ripples,

mutating into a tempestuous ordeal.

I know not, how to release the hurt,

which seems to have imprisoned itself within me.

I wish the rains would wash them clean

or they would flow away in a burst of lachrymose deluge.

Perhaps the intense heat of the sun would burn them down

or I could just delete them with the press of a button.

Alas, the venomous fangs of toxic memories concocts its poison,

as a sinister vortex of diabolic emotion sucks me into it,

entrapping my mind, in a self-created web of despondency,

Clad in a shadowed white

she walked through the closed door

for a midnight sojourn.

Her eerie silence echoed

jolting me abruptly from my slumber.

Sweat trickled down my brow

awakening me to a chilling fear

weird shrills pierced  the dark hollow of the night

the nocturnal silhouette gifted me a red rose

numbing my senses in a haunting web.

The next morning,

I rubbished the incident

as a nightmarish hallucination,

but as I turned over

there lay a red rose next to me!
