My heart won't let me forget
people that have made me happy.
It seems to extend it's claws
and force them up my throat,
begging me to mention those
who I have tried so hard to leave.
I don't think I'll ever forget you.
I won't forget what you said.
I can't forget the broken
memories you left me.
I stopped doing what I loved to
feed onto affection that I had to fight for.
I went so long ignoring sunsets
my toes tied themselves to the tide
so all I had left was a lost freedom
that followed and laughed at my own doom.
I've been holding volcanos
in my eyes and lava in my heart,
I won't let you break me again.
I won't give you a place in my life
if all you do is prance around in the
ashes of my broken heart, dancing
to the sounds of my tear drops against glass.
I dream of you, even though
you're lost in my memories.
Your lack of love was fabricated
by my broken heart and mended into
loyalty and hope that you could change .
I wish I could just slowly let you go.
I wish I could slowly **** you with kisses
and send you off to the sky.
Maybe I'd find you in the stars.
There is so much beyond our scars,
beyond the lines that tangle
themselves around and
over our bodies,we break so easily,
but that's only since we love so hard.
I'll still miss you every sunrise
and find you in each sunset,
but I'll whisper to the moon
I want to go to the stars each
night till I'm in space.
