forgetting you is bittersweet
the pain lessens each day
and i wonder why i ever cried
i begin to fall asleep, knowing
i’ll be safe from any dreams of you.
but the pain — oh, that delightful misery —
it’ll never truly leave me alone.
without knowing why, the beach
will forever bring me gloom.
a kiss will never bring satisfaction
no one else can make the room spin
from a simple brush of the lips
waking up next to anyone
that isn’t you makes my world collapse.
“love” will leave my vocabulary
and i’ll cry when the band plays
that ordinary song i used to adore.
i’ll smell that cologne in the air
and follow it ‘til i’m empty-handed.
from the moment i met you,
my chances at living without you
shattered into a million pieces.
