Haunted Thoughts

Reality raises its ugly head
from time to time
reminding me of its presence
the heart is ripped apart
the agony of it kills me
shred by shred
slowly and painfully.

it mocks my futile efforts
to stall time
to live for the moment
to make peace with what i have
and what is and never will be
Why is it so painful?
when even i know it will never last..

Reality is painful, because it is what we live; on the moment, not in the past or in the future. We know it might not last in the future, because we've experienced in the past, but unfortunately, it raises its head only in the moment. And moments don't wait for time nor tide, nor for us to make peace. Just don't let the heart get ripped, coz that hope for the future can be a warming light that can help us survive. Take the pain, live with it, and move on past it..
