thoughts and emotions can’t be seen
neither can they be chained
they’re here, there, everywhere
memories feels like a myth for some
but so real for those who keep it
so close yet so faraway

these days, i find myself flying back to the past
her smile, her warmth and the smell of my childhood
within the pandora box filled with nostalgia
lies all the goods, the bads, and the forbidden
the guilt i carry for those who has long crossed over
still runs deeper than the rivers i cried

i’m sorry will never be enough to compensate
the pain you felt over the things i did and didn’t do
i was young will never be an excuse for
the way i pushed away those who cared
yet it’s the only thing i can say for now
