How can I overcome
the lack you your kiss?

How can I overcome
the absence of your touch?

How can I overcome
having your scent
craved on my chest
all days and nights long,
feel your skin
but being unable to hug it?

How can I overcome
these burning tears
rolling down my cheek ?

I won’t,
because I don’t want to.

These memories are my home,
my shelter,
my all,
and in the deepest corner of my heart
I know,
we can’t overcome
yet not lived.
