Your memory is a glitch in what could have been a perfect past
An attestation of a phase
So grave it still haunts my dreams,
Taunts my every waking moment.
I’m up all night substituting words for this feeling;
You were compensation for a lot of things missing in my world
A constant in a floppy world I wanted to escape.
A cocktail of pain and desire.
You were a drug and I couldn’t get enough
A dream so vivid I got lost in reality
Wandering in our maze alone
Hoping but knowing you are not waiting for me at the end.
Here’s me hoping you feel just a third of what I felt
But the silly relentless part of me prays you’re spared that kind of pain.
I’m getting dizzy playing this game of hiding and seek alone
So, cheers to you for being my muse.
