beneath the sand of the hour glass,

you were hidden

a grain of sand

so lost and forbidden

tumbling down

a fraction of time

slipping away

from the hand that is mine

i searched for you

though it seemed neverending

my heart; trampled on

my mind; forever bending

your scent's so familiar

a thousand memories past

the life i've never lived

the feelings i've never had

don't leave me yet

just wait until i fall asleep

take away these memories

to save me the grief

laying in my bed

motionless, under the covers

no feelings, no memories

for there was no other...
