Vanishing from Memory

Vanishing from memory…
Memories of endless hours…
spent talking the daylight 
Memories of secrets told…and 
no longing for yesterday…
Memories of jokes shared…and 
of summer’s endless nights…
Memories of wasted time…when 
hours were spent to say 
Memories of talks about 
nothing…the near end 
Memories of the last day spent 
together…when more love had 
never been known…
Memories of the last 
conversation…held in the heart 
Memories of the joy you 
brought me…lost in the pain of 
losing you…
Memories of having you with 
me…lost in the desperation to 
have you alive…
Memories of the happiness you 
brought us…forgotten in the 
longing to keep you…
Memories of seeing 
you...ruined by the pain of 
missing a chance to reassure 
Memories of laughing with 
you…lost in the tears that 
mourn your absence…
Memories of knowing you…lost 
in the pleas to save you…
Memories of your protection…
stolen in the search for your 
Memories of planning to see 
you…traded for their right to 
keep you…

    I like "Memories of talks about nothing…the near end unknown…" and so on how those memories change from what was to what is is now. Continue expressing yourself <3

    That explains A LOT! I honestly was unsure where the title Chemical Romance sprang from

    Thank you. This one and the chemical Romance, are both about a friend with cancer. They're me trying to cope.
