Requiring the visceral
But it wasn’t enough to keep me.
Running as fast as I could from the war
Falling on my knees in front of the one
That didn’t want me.
Partially keeping me aware of the progress
As we advance on the enemy
From the direction they will never expect.
Scenes play out in my head
Of the one that I wanted so desperately
That left me alone in a fortress I hated.
He doesn’t understand love
Too basic for all of that “feeling” stuff.
Every time I hear from him now
My first thought
Is “you remember me?”
