I do not miss those that are alive
for the opportunity is still present
to be within each others presence.
Where as those that have passed
are left to live in the past.
They have lost their place in this world,
while those that are alive
still strive to see another day.
I feel it is my duty,
my life long perpetuity
as the loved and the beloved
to assure those at rest live on.

She was wild like skinny dipping at midnight, stars watching overhead and falling in love with moonlight. The way it lay upon her skin made the ocean envious of her depths within and sometimes between us. She was my sister, not in blood but in orbit. A Venus to my Earth, forged from the same collapsing star and if the universe was in fact to be infinite then this moment would happen again, and again, and again an immeasurable number of times. I found comfort in this thought, knowing though our existence was meaningless, it was still full of feeling, and this feeling, right now, it insisted on existing forever.

And she lost
The light in her eyes
That they once knew
But she was the only one
Who realized
Soon, she'd go out too..
I remember walking all around the city
Flashing lights and bustling cars
All the people kept staring, looking at you
You smiled and looked back at your heart

It was breaking, cracks appearing
You were crying, we were saving
Couldn't mend it, coz he broke it
Glad you ended it, he wasn't worth it

I remember pink clouds of candy floss
Long walks on the beach
Fun days and endless crazy days

Was it when you laughed?
That I found peace
Was it in your hand
That I was beaten
Everybody still tells you what to do
Nobody gives you a chance to think of you

Was this how life had to be?
You moved away, further from me
Was it when you stood him up
That you fight back harder  these days

Remember the mornings, making toast
Remember the feelings, of letting go
Remember your heart when you said no
Remember that time almost lost

Was it when you laughed
That he came back
Left you hanging for a while
After two days of love
He never told you what
He was supposed to

And you made your own
Sister talk with him
And you two went out
And then you left him

You barely talk at all, maybe with your friends
But they are not around, they never were with you till the end
And we can run around, like the kids we used to be
And they can TAUNT us now, but we don't see

Was it when you were laughing
That you let go so hard
Was it when I was crying
That you had to leave
Why did you go through with everything
You could've just let me know

And in the memories, in the evening
When the sun sets, you're still breathing
Letting go of, all that you love
Let this end now, it's time to go now
Something that made me wonder of life... A little confused, made up. I realised something: don't live to please, coz you'll die trying...
You let me down, you broke my crown
So I'll fly away until the angels come calling.
You've shown me how, the difference now
So I'll sail away til the light house calls me in.
All mistakes made, and words along the way.
Keep me rooted in our betrayal.
My thoughts are gone, lost in an ancient song
Hoping it will call me home again.
To your arms,
To the days we had before.
Where all we had in front of us was nothing to hold us down.
To your eyes
And the way they made me feel.
Where no one else existed, no one else was real.

Shadows dance, across the empty room, where our dreams once lived so strong.
Moonlight shows, the darker side of our beaten souls.
Nothing can hide, the scars we've endured, no one can replace, the hardness in our hearts.
Moving on seems easy, until you try it on for size.
My mind wants to forget you, my heart still refuse.
Seems my soul is the last thing to loose.
