Time - By: Aya Hassan
365 days since we parted our own ways
I still see you from time to time
From the corner of my eye
So you wont realise im still looking for you
In the crowd you're lost in
Sometimes though I notice you look back
You're body is turned
And your eyes on my own
When will we use our voices to talk
Please give a detailed explanation about the meaning and main idea of this poem.:
When me and my first love parted ways, I felt indescribable sadness for a long time. I'd find myself drowning in hopelessness but I've always had this feeling that we are still connected in our hearts, and that he sees me the way I see him from time to time-like something lost we'd prefer not to find.
Please explain your writing and thought process regarding this poem.:
After many experiences of the quick hidden glances from across the room, I put my thoughts to paper and wrote this poem. I feel as though this is one of my most personal poems because it directly stems from my repeated occurances.
Why did you choose to write this poem?: I chose to write this poem because of the heavy weight that my past left on my shoulders, I have always felt love for my past, even a year later, and I am happy I chose to put that into words how I did.
