Three Nights In One Room - Poem by Kristina Louisa Carr

In the corners of my memory its nothing but silence that I hear
I am searching for visions of you afraid they've disappeared
Like the sun illuminates the edges behind a storm cloud
I'm still harboring thoughts of you - remaining unbowed

There are times I just want to give up on your existence
But you're out there I just have to eliminate the distance
I have been searching for you looking at hundreds of faces
But you have disappeared completely not leaving any traces

Recalling the three nights we have spent in this one room
We were pretending that it was nothing like wearing a costume
You know nothing of me not even my location or my name
Evidence has been destroyed and I have nothing to reclaim

You are the only one that captured my heart in one take
And today I know that letting you go was a huge mistake
They've said that you postponed your flight and returned
Arriving again in the lobby you had just left I learned

Maybe we were not meant to be and faith was stronger
But we did meet and forget us - I don't want to any longer
In my heart I know that you carry thoughts of me around
Because you took pieces of me with you that can't be drowned

Therefore if the three nights is all I will ever get from you
I hope that you know how much I loved you passing through
For three nights and two whole days you spoke of true love
I was just too afraid - and it was that room I walked out of
