A Dublin Romance
April 24, 2016 § 2 Comments
The streetlights of Dublin hold no romance for me anymore,
the damp, cold of sidewalks,
the sound of rain against cobblestone
only reminds me of a forgotten rendezvous;
the sounds of your laugh filling my mind,
the colour of a sunshine-drenched day in Stephen’s Green park
where we picked at the grass
until our fingers turned green too.
I wonder when our days turned to memories
fast fading away to nothing,
I wonder when I began to close my eyes
and will you away from my thoughts
like a rotten taste that I just can’t rid.
