I forget, just for a while
Caught up in the lives of friends
Of videos that make me laugh
Or deep thinking statements.
I float on a cloud of protection
And then it appears,
This spheroid beast clawing through the fog
It should be Uranus, the shape, the colour
But for me it can only be Mars
I see a blood red mark.
Pain, need, ardor, desire, anger
Invoking a raging storm that even Mother Nature could not hope to match
My heart constricts
And my breathing stops.
I run my finger gently over your name
In sweet remembrance of the times
When I'd known such passion, such love
The type of love one only sees in movies
The type teenagers read of in books but that grown ups don't believe in anymore.
I'd known that. We both had.
Each memory taunting me as it turns to stone and builds the highest wall
And then my finger reaches the last letter
The stones crack and fall like tears
Until I am crushed beneath
And my whole self silently screams
A secret nightmare I cannot share.
I should make you disappear
Just a few keystrokes for the sake of my soul
But I can't. Not yet.
I need to see that live bruise
To remind me.
That it does exist
That it could happen again one day
Somewhere else, someone else
But with a chance at forever
What I'll never allow again.
The thought of the lioness let loose With nothing to fear
Oh, beware world, it's enticing
Tick tock, tick tock
