You will forever be embossed in my heart,
How I feel tormented by your departure.
Your love and support is my remedy,
Stored in the deepest of memories.
When you’re young, your heart’s an open book.
A childhood where love is all you
Making nostalgia the crook
The type of innocent love
With its sorrowful music
Leaves you on the verge of tears
And when it dissipates with time
It leaves you with insecurities as souvenirs.
Memories make love feel like forever,
Your heart’s poured into creating them
And cannot be shared with whomever.
My name, never appearing once in your mind.
As you already leave me behind
Realizing it lost value in your eyes
I now know
It was all just emptiness in disguise
