And even if I knew then
how it would turn out now,
I still would have asked you to
And even though you are long gone
and my name is but a hazy memory in your mind,
I can almost feel the weight of your touch,
emblazoned on my skin
like a brand.
I don't know why my feelings for you
when my memories of you are
I keep fighting to find others
to fill the void
I cannot find another
And though the wind was lashing
and the rain was bitter,
on the horizon:
a spot of blue.
You trade roles like an actor
in the novel of my life;
sometimes the love interest,
sometimes the villain,
and sometimes the pesky one
that got away.
You've inspired so much of my writing,
I can hardly say I wish to never have met you.
I looked down at my chest in shock,
only to realize that the arrow
that you shot me with
didn't leave a mark.
Sometimes, ya just gotta let the emotions out.
