memory of a once was

Such fractured lines in all our stars
finding ways to stay a little more sane
we pull the covers over our faces and drown out all the pain

Nothing stays the same and like the tides of the ocean
come and go I'll have to say goodbye again and again
I never thought I'd see those ghosts drowning out all your words 
and pulling you under to the places that darken the heart

I look for your face in the parting crowd and just like that your gone 
No parting words just the memory of a once was 
every thought every breath is a tiring escapade 
trying to figure out what I did wrong
maybe I loved you too much or never enough

And I'm writing this letter 
to send out to sea
only hoping someday someone will read our story
and hear my voice narrating all the memories in a once was
