Whatever Remains

The remnants of the night tend to linger in my clothes;

the scent of liquor won’t leave my vest,
nor will that girl’s perfume, who was trying her best
my favorite shirt still smells of cigarette smoke,
or the drunken breath of the older bloke
the unsynchronised beats of the music failed to entice me
no sweat seeped into my skirt, I didn’t set myself free
nor did I get lost in the ogling man’s eyes,
turning him down was his most unpleasant surprise
I didn’t come close to anyone’s lips,
that reeked of mistakes and unfortunate slips
I went home with a friend, who remained by my side
kissed him good night, let everything else slide

And the following morning, when only memories remain
I can wash out the proof of their existence, though to me, it’s all the same
Because at least I can make all these disappear,
while you, I cannot
you are always right here
in my mind, never to be forgot

Well, I am back with this bit on here because I sense that you guys missed it a lot. My pick for this week is Sara TK. Sara TK is a young European girl who discovered poetry at an even younger age, and decided to keep writing it whenever inspiration would strike. I find her to be an exceptional writer so I am going to share one of her poem here everyday for the rest of the week. You can read some of her stuff here http://allpoetry.com/Sara_TK I hope you guys enjoy her stuff as much as I did 🙂
