Helpless Romantic

No matter how hard I try
it is damn near impossible
to let you go into oblivion.


You were gone without a trace;
you forgot me like
a drunken mistake.


I should make a clean break,
wipe you out my life
with a permanent eraser.


I know better than to
maintain hope in you,
but I cannot stop myself.


You were the answer to
my prayers when I didn't
even know the question.


You were my saving grace,
when I haven't realized
I had even fallen.


Call me a hopeless romantic
or a helpless romantic,
but love like this doesn't die.
