To Be Forgotten

By Jessica Wilkes

Red roses falling,

Drifting in a pool of your blood.

Your heart is braking

But the tears have already dried.

The pain is burning away your memories,

You try to hold on to the good times

But they're falling to fast.

Smiles to frowns.

Happiness to anger.

Good times to bad times.

Time at all.

Love is beautiful.

Though also harsh.

Poison is sweet but also deadly.

It was writing in the books,

A love like yours just wouldn't last.

But you didn't care

You tried anyway.

And while it worked it was wonderful

But then it was lost.

To be forgotten.

But you won't let go,

And neither will I.
