A Beautiful NIghtmare

I screamed your name in the night
Risen from my nightmare 
You lingered in the darkness around me
Taking from me my chance for light 
 
I tried to forget you, how i tried!
But you stayed with me, unwilling
You haunted my days with memories
So strong I died
 
I tasted you in the air, in life
I felt you on the breeze
I saw you in every face
And it cuts like a dull knife
 
How I hated the very mention of you
I wished for your death, for mine
Any escape from this existence
This pain you brought anew
 
Your presense haunted me
It haunts me still
You are the beast in the shadow
Thats still chasing me
 
Your touch was my ultimate pain
My one true pleasure
The memory of that passion
Drives me insane
 
Your lips were liquid fire
Your tongue molten lava
Their memory....my revulsion
And my one desire
 
Your eyes were sapphire lakes
And I was the wind on their surface
The love remembered there
Was too real to be fake
 
And now here I stand, pretend bold
Haunted by your love
The memory of your touch
And a fire that now grows cold.
