Pieces and Memories of You

A smile that could melt the ice protecting my broken heart, the ice that I placed there long ago when my world fell apart When I had all but given up on true love existing in this life, so I sculpted a wall to protect me from all the tears that I had cried A wall that was made up of nothing but frozen shards of glass, only to be melted by a smile as I walked past A smile that could make me fall to my knees, a smile that I would give up everything that I have just to again see Eyes that literally could render me still, looking into them I knew there was no way that I couldn’t not feel Eyes that I wanted to swim in just to get closer to you, eyes that I could look into for the rest of my life, there was nothing else that I would rather do Eyes that only had to glance my way so seductively and could penetrate my soul, eyes that still haunt my dreams because in reality I can’t see them anymore Eyes that I saw my future within, every dream that I ever had, and tears that I never wanted to witness falling from them that to this day remembering still makes me sad Arms that were so strong that could carry me and my faults, arms that I knew then that if I needed them to, they would always be there to catch my fall Arms that I wanted wrapped around me for all my days, arms that I wanted nothing more than to lie in and do nothing but look at you and just gaze Arms I knew would protect me, strong arms that could make the tears go away, arms that would hold me so tightly and keep all my fears at bay Arms that were so strong that they could lift me as though I were a feather, and arms that one day let me go telling me that we would never be together Beautiful, full, pursed lips that I still long to kiss at night, bittersweet kisses that would be gently placed on my lips that made all in the world right Lips that would whisper beautiful, haunting words into my ear, lips that while I am dreaming, I can still feel your breath so clear Lips that I wish to taste just one last time, lips that I know I should have kissed more than I did when I had you in my life Lips that once conveyed words so beautifully to me, turned into lips that said the most painful words that made my heart bleed Hands that were much larger than mine but still fit perfect just the same, hands that I wish would touch my face again and catch the tears that fall from my eyes like rain Hands that once touched me so passionately, hands that I would give up everything I have to feel just once more, to be complete Hands that held onto mine just so that you could feel my touch, hands that are like any other but only they could give me that rush Hands that were so very gentle and warm as they placed them on my heart, and felt it beating in my chest and knew you were where you belonged Feet that walked into my life that led you to me, but then as easily retreated after saying we weren’t meant to be A voice so masculine, the most beautiful voice that I had ever heard before, I listen for it even to this day, but I know I’ll never hear it again, not anymore A mind so tortured, so caught up, tangled in its own demise, believing the demons within and letting them consume his mind A heart so broken, but at the same time so beautiful, compassionate, and true that gave all that it could to me but in the end, it still wasn’t enough to keep you A goodbye so bittersweet, so painful for us two, a sacrifice that we both made because we knew you were doing what you had to do Tears shed from both of our eyes crying over the love that was lost, wanting nothing but to live in that moment, no matter what the cost A fantasy washed away, a dream that came to an end, two souls crushed in one moment knowing they would never be together again Reality so crippling, feeling as though we were both dead inside, and picking up the pieces of our broken hearts and moving on with our lives.
