An empty void

Now exists

Where my heart once was

Your touch, heart

And kiss

Are now what

I miss

I awake

You're no longer close

I remember

The times you were

Now cold and empty

Like this room

Where we once

Shared our souls


Forget him,

is what they say

Over and Over

like an unstoppable recording

Telling me to

forget him, move on

from him

is like telling

the tide not to come in

forgetting him

is telling my heart

to stop beating

forget him


How do I forget

all I love


I sit alone

As my tears fall

Their heat

Burn my cheeks

As they sop

Into my pillow

They are

My only comfort

On these

Lonely nights

When I cry

For you
