Qurrathul Ain

I remember unnecessary things far too vividly,

I forget very necessary things very very quickly,

But one strange memory,

Of years before,

Is engraved in my heart,

For reasons I can't comprehend.


Me in a yellow school bus,

By the window,

Looking out talking to a friend,

The bus was crossing a bend,

And there came someone in a bicycle,

Crossing the same bend,

Looked at me right when I looked at them,

And it's over.


After many many years,

Now that their 'name' is back in my life,

My insides presented me with this strange memory,

Far too clear than necessary,

For reasons I do not know,

Time will answer, I guess.
