Thank You - Poem by Kristina Louisa Carr

I've tried my very best but memories are hard to evict
They feel like a monkey on my back as if I'm an addict
Daily I attempt to shake them off more often than not
But they remain right here as if my head is a parking lot
I really don't want to visit every place I have been before
But thinking of you makes me happy and so I will do it more

Although I knew that loosing you has always been a valid threat
I accepted the risk and embraced the temptation without sweat
I want to thank you that you never took for granted what I gave
That you let me take your heart and body to enslave
Our love was so destructive and overwhelming all the time
It would have never lasted without ending in a passionate crime

You opened a world for me that I never knew to exist
We challenged each other with things we checked off a list
I have never met a man so angry and yet so tender
Someone that did not mind to give me all and surrender
You are the only one I rather stayed in with than go out
The one guy I wanted to know everything about and throughout

We gave each other all until there was nothing left to share
To envision a perfect love I have nothing else to compare
Outsiders observed you as being very arrogant and remote
But to me with every glance you sent me a passionate note
I am happy to have experienced something so intense
Because now I know that I can and my life makes sense
