You are the ghost,

a memory, 

I'd like to forget the most.

You are my past,

a love that was never meant to last.

For once, it did work,

a perfect romance,

funny and simple,

with a twinge of quirk.

But love does die, and yet still you refuse

to say goodbye,

and continue to tell yourself a lie

about us.

You are the tattoo,

etched into my skin,

an everlasting memory

of how love did begin;

you are the tattoo,

heavy in my heart,

but now the time has come

for both of us to part.
