Being forgotten
 

It's hurt because of hope
 

The waiting and knowing
 

That what you thought you were
 

Is no longer showing.
 

To peoples minds and eyes
 

You are nothing more than the remnants of a sunrise
 

You remember them in a light that you hold so dear
 

Yet when you hope the favor is returned
 

The same message sent returns no signature, clear
 

I can remember when my phone would not stop ringing on New Years Eve.
 

All the love I felt which seemed to come from all seven seas.
 

I held that in my mind
 

Filling with even more joy and love for my friends that will never subside.
 

I know that one time doesn't count for all
 

Those that were just no longer seem to call
 

I still hold those close to me, very near and dear to my heart
 

Regardless of what happens we will never be apart
 

I have not forgotten you nor will i never
 

Its just that when you feel forgotten the pain feels like forever
 

Not like hades or the blood from the river styx
 

But from the holes empty and the walls filled with bricks
 

Desperate to see through all you can see is mortar and stone clotting like a vein
 

No warmth no hopes just your mind and the pain.
