Music of a Nostalgic Heart

I have learnt that sometimes, we just can’t help longing for something that was. Just let the memories and emotions run their course- don’t fight it- ’cause if it was worth forgetting, we would have!

Here’s another poem:

Nostalgia, captivated her heart tonight

Something once buried, came alive

Like MJ’s “Thriller”, though has its fright

still charms your surrender to the thrill of the dead, yet survive

Knowing she’ll never have those moments again

Her smile slowly turned upside down

Her eyes played melancholic melodies as they rain

like Yiruma’s piano classic “When the Love Falls”, though not enough to drown

her heart peels

as the lyrics of letting go heals

with the scratching of the broken record

her smile now turned right side up

for they were good times, a perfect chord

Dappy’s “No Regrets” on repeat,  like trying to fill a bottomless cup

but as with every song, it has to end

so let it rend

a new tune will soon play from start

’cause that was only the music of a nostalgic heart
