    I hear her voice
    Yet she was is not here
    I smell her perfume
    Yet she is miles away
    I drink from the glass she used
    And I feel her kiss
    Yet the taste I can no longer enjoy
    When I’m asleep in the night
    I feel her loving me under the sheets
    Yet when I open my eyes there’s nothing but air
    Who shall deliver me from the haunting memories
    That keeps my passion burning
    Yet there’s no object of desire present
    Tortured day and night
    To relive those times
    Never forgetting
    Always remembering
    Possessed by past encounters
    Never really moving forward
    Locked in an emotional cycle
    Can’t break free
    From the memory

    Now this is very original for MY reading. Never read anything on love along these lines. Very fresh and so beautifully written.
