A Long Goodbye

Why can't I just forget you

do I have to hurt so much,

my mind rewinds back to us

I still feel the linger of your touch.

~*~

I haven't slept for months now

see what your love has done to me,

how can my broken heart ever mend

when you consume my memory?

~*~

I've thrown away our pictures

and your T-shirt that I wore,

the scent of you was still on it

I couldn't fight my tears no more.

~*~

I called you, and when you answered

I couldn't speak past all my pain,

I just wanted to hear your voice

to feel my heart beat once again.

~*~

Then you said, " I know it's you "

and tell me you were wrong,

that you miss me oh so much

and without me you can't go on.

~*~

But I know it's just another lie

and she's still there with you,

how can you say those words to me

when you know it isn't true?

~*~

I'll have to go on without you

and dry these tears I cry,

I hope she makes you happy

for it's been a long goodbye.

~*~
