I Never Forgot You
After all these years,
I never stopped thinking of you.
Your laugh, your smiles, the happy place
You filled in my chest.
You were a cherry blossom petal -
You left so quickly, and took everything I loved with you.
You were ephemeral.
My beating heart becomes nothing -
A closet of skulls and daggers.
I refuse to laugh,
For I forgot how to.
The same sky that bonds us
Is the same sky that separates us.
A smoggy sky, a starry sky
That connects us two.
You gave me an affliction,
You made me lonely and twisted.
If only you stayed, would I be different?
Would my heart beat and make me feel more alive?
The rhymes I hear, the songs I hear -
Is that enough to make me feel something
Real for once?
The hole that can never be filled - and it is your fault.
I never forgot you.
Never forgot the loneliness, the pain I had gone through.
Somewhere out there, mayhap -
You never forgot me too.
