Farewell to What is Now Gone

Location

You left a residue of memories

That I cannot clean

I left upon dawn

Hoping to be unseen

 

Tempted to speak

Distant murmurs

Suffocate the sound

Of all that used to be

 

Encrypted memories

Have no desire to leave

A solemn tear

Unready to cease

 

I cringe at the thought

Of all that used to be

I’ve lived my life in solitude

Hoping that what was done, will be deceased

 

And If I never see you again in this life

Oh how much I wish you knew

This emotion that I cannot hide

Is eating my flesh from the inside

 

So long to the years yearning for you

These knots like thorns

They pierce through the heart

Have caused such mixed feelings, to be torn apart

 

So long to the nights of supernova

Your majestic qualities

No longer enthrall

For the happiness you once gave, is now dissolved

 

With my tattered heart

My shaken soul

I say goodbye

To what is now the unknown
