"An Old Friend"

I met an old friend,
but has she changed now
Is she still into me,
or has it all gone down
I never forgot the way she touched me
My world came apart
and I'm still breaking.

Why'd you go away?
Did you think of me,
---While you were gone?

Please hold onto me,
I feel I'm slipping
A little further in need,
the scales are tipping.
I've lost all control, my breath escapes me
I'm in love once again, so inspirating

Why'd you go away?
Did you think of me,
---While you were gone?

Inside
I hide
My words
Inside
I die
For her

So reckless and wild,
I'll take my chances
An old friend to a child,
Yesterday's romances
Please hold onto me, I'm still shaking
Don't you let go again, recreate me.

Why'd you go away?
Did you think of me,
---While you were gone?

  1. Past memories and relationships are something that we can all relate to-- wondering would have been, could have been, or why things happened. Fond and wistful memories sometimes seem to pass thru our minds like a gentle breeze thru a window that rouses us from an afternoon reverie. This poem is one that could apply to almost any of us.
