Poem: Next Memory.

Fixed on a future that can’t be ours,

I’ll listen to my heart like a broken record

And you’ll slip into the dusty horizon

Where time and desire fade into intangibility…

A dreamers love was always doomed.

Doomed for heartache,

Doomed for failure.

You’ll pass out of sight but never

Out of memory.

I know

But let me pretend once more…

Hold me in your arms and let me pretend

Once more,

When in my heart i know all you could ever be

Is my next painful memory.
