It’s coming back,
It’s coming up…
again…but the feeling is more intense than ever.
You’re suppose to fade,
Fade away from my mind,
Memories should fade.
But they haven’t.
They bleed through my shirts,
Creating red marks to indicate my soft heart,
I’m forever marked.
Never again beside you.
Funny how I could never write you real poetry,
Now it’s all coming from my heart,
It’s rolling off my tongue,
I’m losing my ability to speak with that accent you taught me.
Mariachi’s – they seem to be everywhere,
I wish I could remember your favorite Mariachi…
…but I can’t recall, probably because I was huffing in your car,
about something new I was mad about.
I still can’t get you outta my head.
You run my mind,
And I re-run, re-play that song over in my head,
Hoping you’ll hear my anthem,
But instead you just visit me at nights with nightmares,
Sometimes of our past,
Typically about your present.
But still, you never leave my mind,
Never leave my heart.
