Memories Beyond The Door

Talking to him was like a high
Then I'd crash and burn with a cry
I'd eat you, breathe, and sleep
But the darkened memory of you I keep
The memory of you is seared in my mind
And peace I cannot find
Even now, after all this time
The burden of it is mine
It was a dangerous rush
And for a while, I'd dare to touch
And yet I kept coming back
Because I thought it was something I lack
My love for him was raw, real,
And unlike anything I thought I could feel
I was addicted and out of control
Couldn't get out, even when I wanted to fold
Going at high velocity, no surprise I fell when it ended, so abruptly
Like a broken bone it's mending, but will never be the same
The pain will go too, Till all I have left...
Is the memory of you

    This seems too genuine to be made up (most of what I write about when it comes to love is just imagination, anyhow). I don't know what it's like to be "infatuated" with someone to the point you aren't even acting like yourself anymore... but your words take me there. Congrats on your win, my friend!

    *cough* that's perhaps *cough* because it wasn't made up *cough* (Getting a cold here, maybe...) Well you know, for not really experiencing love you do a pretty good job of writing about it! Love is a crazy thing. Keeping your emotions in check is hard when you've fallen that deeply. Thanks so much! :D Appreciate the comments!
