I tried to erase
all your mem’ries,
all your trace.

But my heart
still remembers,
that fateful December.

You said
it was me,
all along.

Why now
I am here
all alone?

  1. Skillful use of rhyming sounds to bring all the meaning together. I agree with how this sounds, overall, like a song. The second set of stanzas (three and four) would work as a poignant chorus.

    1. Oh. Thank you, Christopher.
      Lately, I have been fantasizing of writing a song because my favorite songs have poetic beautiful rhyming lyrics. Now you are giving me some confidence to do that. 🙂

  2. When we hear those words, the heart truly believes it is forever. Sadly, it isn’t always the case. This is accurately sad for many of us and you write it beautifully!
