Nostalgia

An air of nostalgia saunters in with a chill
and I stand rooted there.
As a wave passes inside me.
I give in to memories..

Ps. Old Recycled poetry time, exam time ie!

  16. I totally understand the thing about the night before exams. All the poems come so easily when there's piles of books left to study! That's quite a rhyme in itself. haha. I am not much of a poet though!
