unfinished

Ghost of You

Folder: 
Thalia

I feel like I'm grasping

At what's already gone
A shade of the past
A cruel man's con

 

And I cannot figure
How we got here
To a place where I shed
Many a tear

 

Where my tears mingle
With the rain
And although I love you
You cause me pain

 

How'd we get here
From a place so bright?
Appeared in darkness
What happened to the light?

 

From a time when we'd
Speak everyday
A time long ago
When "you're perfect" we'd say

 

A time when I'd
Call you sweetheart
When we were together
Yet so far apart

 

It's been a year
Since the start
Were you ever not
In my heart?

 

I'm clinging to
These fond memories
Soaked by my sorrow
Down on my knees

 

A month without you
Feels like eternity
I feel you slipping 
Into anonymity

 

All this history
Was any true?
This unfinished business
The ghost of you

Theme for a better poem

I see you at my strangest thoughts
You couldn't hope for it any better

Monroe

I know this chick

By the name of Monroe

Though I barely know her

She's had me since hello



She gets my heart pumpin'

My blood starting to flow

She makes my knees weak

She hits me real low



------------------------------------



Chopped black hair

Nevah stayin' the same

Always makin' new rules

Always changing the game



She keeps me movin'

Like dancing on a flame

She's a wild one

One you'll never tame



------------------------------------



Talk your shit

'cause it's fine with me

All that really matters

Is that she is mine



------------------------------------



A moment I dream of

That I'm always dying to capture

An amount of thrill

That you just can't measure
