The
Transients
in a Moment
of Remembrance







SHICHAN (CELINA) YU


It all came back,

When their eyes were met.

Raised eyebrows 

Pulled up four corners of the smiles,

And lives, again, aligned.

︎

The tightening of the throats, 

The shaking of the heads,

And escaped some heavy sighs.  

︎ 

The red threads of memories

Clawing up the yellowish whites,

The blurred vision peeled open the hearts,

Retrieving the most cherished times.

︎ 

Blinking and blinking,

Could not stop the memories from stinging!

It still hurt when you pierce my soul,

With those same old fiery knives.

︎

When the silence was just about to end,

She reached out her hands

To join him in the roaring tears,

And reunited with the same old friend.
