Take Me Back

Hello everybody! Too often I find my mind wandering back to the days before this pandemic. These few months in lockdown seem like decades. It’s a strange experience, to say the least, but our only hope is that we will emerge stronger from the remnants of this pandemic. Lockdown has had its ups and downs, and I wrote this poem inspired by my hopes and wishes for life to return back to normal.

Take me back to the time in the past.

This maddening reality claws at my heart.

I wish to be free from this cocooned existence.

Memories threaten to tear me apart.

Take me back to those long lion days

Spent frolicking with laughter abound…

Whispering winds carry echoes of the past.

My wandering mind comes harshly aground.

Take me back to the blissful ignorance,

Before this wistfulness consumes me.

Melancholy musings toy with my emotions.

I long for my soul to be free.

Shards of memories embed in my heart.

Threads of unfinished thoughts amass.

Normality teasingly beckons my soul.

My wish is but simple: take me back.

I hope you all enjoyed reading this! My apologies for not being as active on WordPress as I usually would – I’ve just taken some time off to enjoy some quality family time. I hope you are all well, and safe.

  1. This is amazing, Ritisha!

    But, I’d love to go forward in this case, probably to a time when world has restored back to normal. I don’t want to go back and experience these tough times yet again.

  2. A simple but powerful wish you ask for. We immerse ourselves in past happy memories often to getaway from the harsh present or whenever the present become harsh. Pray everything goes to normal and enjoy our present
