Baggage

on

So here I pack my bag and leave you
Leave you behind me and move on
Move on to a land of my dreams
My dreams that once revolved around you!

Around you I feel suffocated and betrayed
Betrayed is what I felt the fateful day
The day it all rolled out in front of me
Of me nothing left that day, a hollow stayed

Stayed with me your memories for long
For long I pulled at the pieces that were once one
Once one piece fell, the puzzle stays incomplete
Incomplete my life was without you for long

For long I carried the baggage of emotions
Of emotions that once meant the world
The world was a long stretch away from here
From here I finally move on leaving behind the emotions
