MemoryThose glassy eyes painted blueMemory by ~Artistgirly-18
Rimmed with tears, what to do...
I watch you as you watch me
Masks to hide our memory
No more time for us to grieve
I just wait to see you leave.
Those whispered words under lights
Strung about high in the nights
We look about with a soft gaze
Anywhere but into the haze
Where we sit close but far away
Never letting love in our way.
Those aching breaths, thoughts aligned
Masterfully, painfully designed
A catalyst of broken things,
Scattered pieces of scattered dreams
I still remain an obedient slave,
Still passive for the love you gave.
Those repetitive salutations, goodbyes
Weakened by that incessant drive
Taking Advantage of My MemoryWhat's the capital of Tennessee?Taking Advantage of My Memory by ~Artistgirly-18
What year did the slaves go free?
Why did Columbus set out to sea?
Who do you think looks like me?
When did we become a democracy?
Who the hell is Bruce Lee?
Who sings I want you to want me?
Who wrote the book Misery?
All these questions, don't you see?
You're taking advantage of my memory.
To love the lostWords, thoughts, oft cut short,To love the lost by ~Artistgirly-18
Silence appears your only retort
I dot my i's, my t's are crossed,
Still I hide my voice, to love the lost.
Shallow breath, in the mirror I look,
Reading my own eyes like an open book,
Yet I do ponder what this has cost,
Allowing myself to love the lost.
Whispers and hints I display,
When your smile comes out to play
But all my energy I do exhaust...
In an effort to love the lost.
Each dream trampled, as reality sets,
An empty bed filled with regrets,
And still as often as I am tossed,
I return each day to love the lost.
Moments where your warmth consumes
Hope in my heart, like a flower blooms
Thank youLet me kiss those gentle hands,Thank you by ~Artistgirly-18
Who guide me through sickness.
Let me honor your great strength,
That holds me in my weakness.
Let my words give you praise
For all that you have done,
As a lover, a brother,
As my best friend, and a son.
Let me thank you once more,
-For how to make you see-
Just how much I appreciate you,
How much you mean to me.
