I Never Forgot

I never forgot about you,
not for one second,
not for one day,
I may have had to,
on the slight occasion,
become entangled in distraction to somewhat ease the hurt away.
But you were still always there,
in my heart,
in my mind,
I promise,
I swear.
I never once forgot how you smelled,
how you tasted,
our nights together while everyone else was out getting wasted.
We were getting high in our own special way,
and I never forgot the beautiful sins we committed on the sheets that we would afterward lay.
I never forgot,
I will never forget,
I will never allow my heart to miss the opportunity of skipping a beat at the mention of your name,
I will never regret.

Like You've Always Been

You were in my dream last night,
when it comes to you,
even my sub-conscious I cannot fight.
You were so clear,
I got to touch your skin,
it's as if you never left,
you're in my heart and in my mind,
just like you've always been.

Did You Ever For A Second Think

Did you ever for a second think that maybe I did what I did,
and that I do what I do,
to end what you didn't have the courage to?
My heart beats on, 
ready to yet again weather the storm, 
but know it will always care for you.

Forgive & Forget

If your hate for me is so strong why have you not yet willed me away?
Instead, you act like you have nothing to say.
Part of me wants to stay,
but it's too hard living this way,
never truly knowing in whose arms tonight you lay.
But I have to have faith in what we once had,
in the fact that there was so much more good than bad.
And that maybe just maybe as the moon rises and the sun prepares to set,
that both of us can forgive and forget,
and go back to being the two people we were,
on that day we first met.

Fire & Water

You traded fire for water but it's okay,
I didn't want to force you to stay.
Your will is strong but my heart, although battered, is stronger,
eventually will wears out,
but hearts, they beat on for much longer.
Water evaporates over time but fire keeps burning,
and when you loosen the tight grasp you have on your pride,
I'll be there to satisfy your insatiable yearning.

Alone In My Bed

When I lay in my bed at night,
I think of you,
I turn out the light.
I feel the cold sheets on my skin,
and fill my head with nothing but sin.
I grasp for you but you're not there,
however, in my mind you're so very clear.
Clear are your eyes staring into mine,
clear are your strong hands effortlessly making my skin whine.
Clear is your body that I know so well,
clear is the sound of your breath synching with mine as we ease our way into heavenly hell.
On disagreements of the past we dare not dwell,
we just collide and never tell.
Soon the feeling of my own hands wake me,
once again I had succumb to the temptations of the night and allowed it to take me.
It doesn't matter that you're not there,
because I know every detail of you so clear,
that when I close my eyes towards the dark I no longer fear,
and imagine you're near,
my hands don't just claw at the sheets,
they tear.

Pieces

When we first met my heart wasn't yet ready for someone new,
it was broken and beaten all black and blue.
But I handed it to you in this delicate state,
because I didn't dare turn my back on what could possibly be fate.
In your hands it sat, barely beating and heavy with wear,
how was I to know that you would be yet another to not handle it with care. 
However, hope appeared when you decided to hold onto it for a while,
but faded just as quickly the day you let it fall and it shattered on the tile.
You didn't even help me pick up the pieces you just walked away,
leaving me with a handful of fragments to live out each day.
I put them back in my empty chest but they didn't mend,
because I lost more than my heart that night, I also lost a friend.
These pieces won't keep me alive for long but it's okay,
because you touched them when they were whole,
and that beautiful thought is what helps me survive through yet another day.
