Forget Me Not (2008)
'Looking at a mirror shining everything!
it is all you, you that you praise after all
all the things you've given to represent....'
But what did you look for that slows you?
what do you feel that is holding you?
what is/has caused delay to your needs?
And I need nothing that has hurt me
My choices led me to these thoughts
taking me to what never will ever be
Sit alone never to beg for a certain feel
A psychological drain nobody would want
But a pain ceases to exist every single day
Where do I head with all this, this curse
A man puts themselves in this position
A vulnerable one to a life sustaining soul
Like inarticulate keyboards there we are
waiting when time will come for a kiss
waiting for dawn to share the warm love
But it was not a heart 'she' was looking for
it was a fortune 'she' was after, after all
a fortune that would never ever present.....
'A tell tale reflection of how I really felt
A shiny puddle of tears on the dead floor
ruffled, scattered, vaporizing in disgust.'
