Haunting Me

That song came on the radio,
The one you used to sing to me.
Instantly my memories
Broke the wall I’d built to keep them
Locked in the darkest corner of my mind.
Images of you, of you and I
Flooded my mind.
Even though my eyes were open,
You were all I could see.
I squeezed my eyes shut
And pressed my hands over my ears
But nothing could chase away
The bittersweet echo of your laughter.
Goosebumps spread up and down my arms
As your phantom hands caressed my skin.
I began to shake, but I still couldn’t shake
Your memory.
Why do you haunt me so?
You’re gone; it’s over
Yet I still wake up with the warmth of your hand
Resting softly in mine.
You walked away but the memories of us
Still live inside my head.
