Hold Me Till I Forget - Poem by Kathryn Garner

In the memory
Of what you meant to me
I killed the one I craved
The thing I shouldve saved
These memories are meant for you
A cause to supress the past
But these hauntings are far past due
And I pray this is the last

I cant forget to hold onto this
And though ive 'moved on'
Your still the only one I kiss
I can only hope
And I cant only pray
That one day I'll rise
And you'll have gone away

But can I hope, or can you hold?
Onto things so far forgotten
And these memories so rotten
I cry for our last
For I'm living in the past

Sleep among the dead
In this empty bed
In all these things ive kept
And all these pasttimes ive dreamt
Hold me, hold me in this darkness
But I was so heartless

I cant comprehend
What I did to you and me
But I do know how
To detest what I've turned out to be

Using, choosing, abusing
All these silent souls
Using, abusing, loosing
This pattern is so old
I need you
I want you
And I crave every bitter bit
I'm sleeping
Yet weeping
I cant take this shit
Going through these hearts
Trying to find that part
of me.....
That I gave to you
And I cant take it back again
I'll never have you back again
Father forgive me
For I have sinned
And now
I'll never have you back again

Theres somthing inside
I cant simply hide
From myself
And all I've delt

Hold me
Kiss me till I breath
Hold me
Since you wont leave

Dont linger here
Tempting me to die
I beg and plead
Feed me another lie
Maybe then
I wont remeber whats true
Only then
Will I forget you
