jaboneros street corner madrid street.

i walked down the same streets
with old nostalgic feelings
and old memories filling,
flowing through my heartbeat.
 
but things aren’t the same.
the gridlock has changed.
cars have rushed past.
lives have already changed.
 
i was the one who left.
but, now, i’m left behind.
i’ve made my decision once.
and, now, it is their time.
 
i walked down the same streets.
they are still the same roads.
growing along each other.
but not crossing anymore.
 
i look down the long lost roads.
buildings and murals have changed.
i want to hold onto them tightly.
but they are no longer there.
 
so i lie down here.
in my cocoon.
i thought i was the one who left.
i guess, i was left behind, instead.
