I no longer ask questions
since my curiosity was replaced by suspicions.
I no longer cry for lost things
since my tears were covered by fake smiles
I no longer play hide and seek
since my innocence grew into ignorance.
I no longer say I miss them
since my concern turned into responsibility.
I no longer admire the beauty of rain
since my excitement grew into indifference.
I no longer believe in miracles
since my fantasies were erased by realities.
I’m wandering through
the streets of the amygdala
In search of my vanished feelings,
hoping to bring her back once again…
