Memento Mori


I was never used to company, whenever I felt alone I spent my days in my head. Thinking where it all went wrong, as time passes by. the world left and placed me on my knees.


Here I am starting over again, as I look both ways Here you are coming to crash what I’ve built

Your presence still lingering  Like the cigarette you left by my bed


I walk alone on the road that’s still filled with our memories

Videos playing inside my head

Flashback of pictures burning

As I try to mend the pieces you’ve broke

Pieces of me, I’ve left behind

Trails that lead me back

To the person I no longer was


Your silence is deafening

As I pour my apologies for your mistakes

Your shackles no longer chains me

As I lay in a field of flowers

The sun bathes me in its light once more

    I can't tell you how much i like this piece. Especially today after posting "for Julie-Ann" (which i'd love to see your comment upon) which is about a love lost.
    Your words though are far more personal and easy to empathise with.

    A must for adding to my favourites.
