Free From My Mind

It’s nighttime here, but I can still hear

The echoes of my long lost lover

I’ve dreamt of her more lately

Thinking of her breaks my heart daily

And each sun-kissed shoulder is a reminder

Of the magnitude in my failing

I never thought I could fall so hard, so far

Because that was five years ago

And I still haven’t hit the bottom

We live in the same town, but I haven’t tasted

The sweetness I felt on my tongue

When she spoke

The happiness inside

Could hardly be contained

But now the memory is trapped

In picture frames I create

Little trinkets kept in my mental pocket

For good luck, and in good hope that I

Will see her again

Even touching her shadow

Would ease my pain enough to say enough

And let her be free

From my mind
