Some times, some places

Have a scent, leave traces

Long sleeping thoughts awaken my brain

Thoughts from which I should refrain

Yet they hover round the perimeter

When I’m feeling at my most insecure

Finding their way to top of mind

Thoughts of you are what I find

I wish that wishes made them go

You’re from too far gone I know

I don’t want to remember can’t you see

And yet your image hijacks me

This mist of water in the air

Kisses my face, dampens my hair

I reach for your hand from memory

Though you’re nowhere near that I can see

Still you haunt the corners of my deepest dreams

I’ve never escaped your hold it seems

Unfinished business you taunt me so

If you’ll never come back please…

Let me go
