The Melody

By
I let those memories play in my head
Just like a melody
Those beautiful notes, the hands that played
Seemed to hit every single key

I look through the memories
Torn apart and ripped in two
I look through those memories in my head
That lead me back to you

And even though time goes by
So slowly
You can’t show to me
The things we used to understand
And it’s all going through my head
Like the songs you used to sing for me
So long ago and don’t you know
That we never said goodbye?
We never said goodbye

I got that song playing right inside my mind
I ain’t got nothing else to leave behind
But still I can’t find those reasons
To why it ended like it did
But you never did say those words
Even when we were just kids

And since it’s all disappeared
And there’s no one left who wants to hear
The melody that I seem to have left inside my head
That maybe it is finally over even though those words
Weren’t said

And even though time goes by
So slowly
You can’t show to me
The things we used to understand
And it’s all going through my head
Like the songs you used to sing for me
So long ago, and don’t you know
That we never said goodbye?
We never said goodbye

There were swings,
There were rings,
There were fake weddings and lullabies
There was hope, there was fate,
There were those staying up late nights
Where the stars shinned ever so bright
But now it’s gone,
There’s just the melody
Of what once was
And was could have been tonight
If you and I were together
Like we used to be
But still we can remember
Still we can remember

That even though time goes by
So slowly
You can’t seem to show me
The things we used to understand
Yet it’s all going through my head
Like the songs you used to sing for me
So long ago, and don’t you know
That we never said goodbye?
We never did say goodbye

And that melody just seems to go on inside my head
It plays just like the memories of what we had
Of what should have been, oh
Why couldn’t we had just ended it right then and there?
Maybe you tried,
But I couldn’t say goodbye

I love your poem. It's so truthful and real that I feel so in the moment. You've got a wonderful talent for expressing feeling in your writing without getting uncomfortably personal. Spectacular writing!
