Tardis    1997 -    
"And if you ever wanna remember me, then you can do one thing. That's all, one thing. Have a good life. Do that for me, Rose. Have a fantastic life."
"And if you ever wanna remember me, then you can do one thing. That's all, one thing. Have a good life. Do that for me, Rose. Have a fantastic life."

I hand you a shovel.
I ask you to dig a hole.
You look me in the eyes.
You tell me I'm beautiful.

I point to the ground.
I repeat my one request.
You start to dig the hole.
You say it's not a test.  

I hold my hand out.
I let the trash fall down.
You hand me my shovel.
You exit with a frown.

I fill the hole with dirt.
I put a stone at the end.
You don't get my soul.
I have to start again.

A lifetime isn't long
enough
to forget, the
memory of the day
we met.

Even a day added
to the
length of
forever, wouldn't
be enough to make
it better.

You are stuck to
my
heart, with
permanent glue.

For
the rest of
these walks home,
I will always think
of you.

#loss  

Love letters, places where
we slept, and the old ring
on my finger; these are all
portals that take me back
in time.

#loss  

The ocean was my enemy,
and I was lost. I couldn't
see the lightning, but it
struck me in the head.

My mind went south,
to hide away from the
winter. Summer never
really came, cause all I
had was rain.

#pain  

I fly in a big blue box,
through time and space.
I save the universe, and
the human race.

When I get close to death,
I change my face. I have
Time Lord hearts, from
the planet Gallifrey.

Why am I crying? You're
just a person. There's
seven billion people in the
world. I can replace you.

Why am I dreaming? We
spent time together. I
can do that with anyone.
My heart doesn't need you.

#loss  

I see your head,
the twinkle of your hair,
and the tiny gap between your
teeth.

I see your mouth,
the sparkle of your lips,
and the old coat covering your
shoulders.

I see your hands,
the glaze of your fingers,
and the torn pants touching your
butt.

I see your heart,
the beauty of your soul,
and I'm in love with everything
you are.

#love
