I never want to, and yet I look back,
I hate it so, and yet I look back,
I know not what I yearn for, I just keep looking back,
I know not who’s looking ahead, I just look back.
Long forgotten, long forgiven,
All the pictures faded away,
But it’s only me, that keep looking that way.
Well, who’d know my plight,
Who’d know why I decide
To let go of all bans,
And just desperately keep looking back…
And yet again, we expect what we shouldn’t,
Love whom we mustn’t,
Pray for the impossible,
And again, the broken laws are so palpable.
Hoping in the most hopeless moments,
Reminiscing the beginning even in the end,
Cherishing those incomplete memories,
We live on by ignoring so many vagaries.
All of it as futile as futile can be,
Yet there continues those euphoric dreams,
For they complete our beings,
They surpass our limitations,
And so, there lives forever the forbidden expectations.
