Pulled you close
Then pushed you away
Will always think about us
Sounds such a cliché

Can love be better?
When it’s a memory
Musing contemplation
Where we both could be

I relish the reminders
Thoughts flow of who we were
As currents pass over rocks
Emotions start to stir

Cannot defend
Will not deny
Although can have moments
Not a simple guy

Experience of life
Doesn’t give an excuse
As the grip tightens
Fight more to be loose

But this grip isn’t harmful
It’s the best element of being
Shouldn’t be scared of love
Disbelief in seeing

Must have to move on
Memories fade to past
Always endure for me
In mind we can last

Think about how you are
Contemplate saying “hello”
Would it just cause hurt?
Best to let it go?

About markious72

Here I wish to let my strange and vivid imagination and opinions run wild. I do hope you like what you read. I would love to be a writer, I won't pretend otherwise. Although it is only in the last couple of years that I have realised it. I guess if it meant to happen it will. Happy reading, happier writing. :-)
