How do you stop thinking of somebody?

I wonder how you stop thinking about somebody – do you push them into a corner of your brain and pretend they don’t exist anymore?

Do you keep reminding yourself every now and then, of the times the shift in your dynamics that turned a little too sore?

Do you wrap memories of them in a sheath you would have wanted to clad yourself in, and send them flying into the clouds?

Do you let go, assuring your tiny little heart that all of it was, but a mirage you stepped into, when you were inexplicably doused?

Do you paint them as rainbows in the dreams they taught you to see?

Or do you tie wings to the thoughts that haunt you incessantly of their absence, and set them free – how do you simply stop thinking about somebody?

I hoard books for a living. And read them too, when I am not sleeping. I express what I think, so my unheard feelings don't sink. I like to sing when I walk, to keep shades grey, at bay. I speak like a dork, but I don't want to drive anyone away. I write what's real, and nothing fake, so visit my blog whenever you need a break ;)
