    No more love songs

    I listened to our song on the radio today.
    ****, I wasn’t ready for that.
    And I’ve decided,
    No more love songs.
    No more songs to remind me
    Of days that I cannot even
    Wish into memory,
    Of moments that
    Never really happened.
    No more memories to haunt me
    Like your name on a whispered wind.

    I took you in,
    Whole,
    And now I must empty myself,
    But lovesongs,
    Those sweet, sweet lovesongs,
    Those old friends from the
    Old place,
    Those fond friends.

    That kiss on the cheek,
    Long after the kiss is over,
    Those tentacles of
    Yesternight’s certainty,
    That pale in the daylight of consequence.

    Ah, those lovesongs,
    Those cruel, cruel lovesongs.

    They remind me of times when your love
    Formed my words,
    Held me safe,
    Shaped my very thoughts.
    They taunt me with the flicker of a stolen moment,
    A moment missed,
    Another, set to part.

    Those songs that bathed me when the ocean
    Went cold,
    That undressed me
    While Penn reminded you that
    “You don’t love me, and I know now….”

    Those songs that guided me
    Down memory lane of a
    Future with you,
    Our wedding song,
    Remember that?
    We had wedding songs,
    And bouquets adorned our steps
    Luther and Sade,
    They sang our lovesongs,
    Lovesongs…

    They haunt me,
    Taunt me,
    Remind me,
    Console me,

    Bring you back.

    And that’s the LAST thing I need:
    Another sad lovesong back in my life.
