Dried Ink


I can’t kiss you, yet I taste the sweetness of your lips

I can’t touch you, yet I feel the tingle from your fingertips

The thought of you, a curse I have to bear

The lightness of your laughter, I’ll never hear


My world is empty, but you fill every space

Your heart still beats when we embrace

Stars still twinkle when you smile

I’m lost on memory lane, my personal exile


I am awake with darkness between my chest

I stare at the madness, nothing makes sense

I miss your voice, the sounds you make

And your victory dance when you eat cake


I need you, just one more time

To sing our favorite songs at bedtime

I beg you, don’t leave me alone

Trace my tears and come back home


We still have dreams, remember?

To see the world in its wonder

But now, you’re six feet under

And our love song, a broken sonata


-Dedicated to all hearts that have lost
