That dank smell still lingers,
Lost in the lustre of your memory
A life without you, I just don’t want delivered.
Why did you say goodbye
when byes are never good
I feel lost more now than ever
Yet back then somehow I understood
That for you to return
Would be a wish too big to grant
And that for me to live and learn
Was my only actionable plan.
I think back to the time when you held my hand
When you grinned I laughed
When we kissed my heart danced
Now only to realise what I had but can never have.
**The feeling of missing the relationship and intimacy I had with someone in the past.
