    Kyo's Poetry - Return to Yesterday

    Return to Yesterday

    Looking back, briefly, to today,
    I see what loss I have accepted,
    And I succumb, these feelings,
    In which have become gray.

    As I write, this fragile prose,
    I cry, inside, for yesterday's joy.
    For, it was then, where there was light.
    But now, I have become my own darkness,
    Lost in my eternally blurred sense, of sight.

    I seek, no longer for tomorrow,
    No longer for now, or for then,
    But to be without sorrow.

    I seek a yesterday.

    I seek a past,
    Where my stale memory remembers,
    A sky of blue, a tree of green, a flower of red,
    But now, I see, that my world has become bland.

    I seek,
    That I savour this desire,
    This desire for yesterday,
    A yesterday, where there will be,
    No tomorrow, no then, no future.

    For my future is bleak.

    Commas are intended for dramatic pauses. This might not be really a prose, but then again, I did not concentrate on structure, poetic devices, or rhyming.

    I like it It's sad, but makes you wonder. One of my favorite sort of poems to read. Keep up the good work.
