More than Just Another Memory


Chasing the shadows of your mind
Not too near, yet not too far behind
I hear your whispers echo in the shadows of mine

You feel that?
That bumping
Clawing at your mind
That's me
That's a memory trying to break free

It's your craigslist ad at 3 AM
Begging me to come back home again
It's a broken-hearted cry
Pleading for more time
It's a prayer in the night
Calling out in hopes to find
A chance to make the past revive

Do you feel it now?
That burning
Screaming in your mind
That's us
That's the heart reaching out for love

So while we chase the shadows in sight
Not too near, yet not to far behind
Hear the whispers echo in your mind

Do you feel it yet?
Can you feel me reaching out?
Do you know, that I still want you here with me?
That I want you to be
More than just another memory

Come here and sit with me
And lets talk of all we are and can never be
Let's talk about love that always goes away
And how nothing seems to keep the insecurities at bay
Of how nothing at the time could make us stay
Maybe we were too young in a place where grown-ups live
But even they forget to share and give

Now, we're chasing shadows in our minds
Not too near, yet not too far behind
What we had together, and what we left behind

Sometimes, I wish that things would never change
Despite everything that gets in the way
Because you can never look behind
Without wasting moments of your life

Can you feel it now?
The feelings crying out?
Don't you know, that I never gave up on you and me?
Not really...
And that I'll always want you to be
More than just another memory

Your whispers still echo in my mind

scratching and screaming from the inside

Never to let me rest in peace

as You're just too far away from me


You'll always be more than a memory

for it's you who makes this torn heart beat

Reach for me within your dreams

and I'll be there with you when you sleep


Come to me, let's make this real

Together at last our hearts will heal

Let us be more than a memory

and be one with eachother eternally


(glad to see your words around here again, RoC! You are always an inspiration)

It all boils down to no more

It all boils down to no more left,

The fighting, the pretending, 

And oh the regret,

It all boils down to a bit more wise,

The mask is removed,

And I've faced my disguise,

It all boils down to a little bit older,

Life has grown deeply

Through those nights so much colder,

It all boils down,

And the air much to thick,

It all boils down to 

"I don't give a lick".





...and he asked her, "do you write poetry? Because I feel as if I am the ink that flows from your quill."

"No", she replied, "but I have experienced it. "
