I am throwing away our memories
Thoughts used to make me smile
All they do is take me to the past
My heart goes on for miles

It is helping me convince myself
I don't need you anymore
I'm taking a deep breath
Watching them soar out the door

But paper-thin they start shaking
Wings broken they try to glide
One by one they crash back down
The landing strip inside my mind

The hollow ache rushes in
Reminder of what we had
Ghosts are everywhere I look
Can't escape or understand

Instead wonder how and why
Never really cared at all
Ponder every possibility
It drives me up the wall

But I can't find the answer
Every puzzle piece is there
Can't make it fit together
Aching soul is just too scared
Written like ten years ago
