Dead Emotions

Remembering everything about you that I’d known,
And shrug away the flakes that chill me to the bone
Looking out for your trails
While my heart silently wails

Who’d have guessed things would turn this way?
Fate has a nasty game to play
Remembering the cool smell of your shave
As I shed a tear walking to your grave

Fighting my emotions as I stand on the ground
Depression takes over me in another round
Your friends have deposited flowers fresh and new
While I fight to take back only you

You broke the earnest promises
And I realize your presence still misses
You were Alpha, I was Beta
My mind still wanders running like a cheetah

Please come back, or I’ll turn wild
I won’t bother you - not even mild
It’s only your presence that I crave
I’m tired of pretending to be brave




But things seldom went my way
And I have nothing left to say
Because I know you’re still listening
And weep as I know your absence will sting
