    Cold like dry ice intermingling with tears
    Misting over memories of yesteryears
    Out of touch with the present
    Immersed in past loves
    Comparing them one by one
    With the currrent captor of my heart
    Theeives with no honor
    All one and the smae
    They shed their outer shell
    Redecorate their exterior and take on the persona of another
    Then return undercover as a new lover
    And so i go back to the past
    And remember

    Remember every smile, tear, and kiss
    And try to match it to his
    In order to uncover any trickery
    He may share with my past loves
    Like magic, his features may rearrange
    And convert into that of treachery
    His lovely lips may twist to spew deception
    Acidic words that scorch my soul
    Leaving a hole where love once thrived
    Hope resuscitates my heart to beat once agan
    So the current captor of my heart can hold it hostage

    But to my dismay
    Heartbreak has learn new tricks
    It hides behind his touch
    Crouched over and waiting
    For the perfect opportunity to come out of hiding
    Poised to take me by surprise
    Starting with the lies
    Paranoia grabs me by the throat
    So I gasp questions to his every statement
    Trust long ago fled along with any hope for real love
    Still his mind and mine make love
    Intertwined in thoughts and emotions
    But even in pure rapture
    I can't help but remember

    Lusting for the caress of his voice
    Wrapped around me, warm and comforting
    Deviously lullin me into a sense of sercurity
    Seductively dancing on my eardrums
    Playing a fantastic rythm for me to love
    His voice in tune with my heartbeat becomes my favortie song
    Softly putting me to sleep like a lullaby
    And I dream of my past loves
    And how they, too, put me to bed
    So I awake in a cold sweat from my nightmare
    Staying up all night
    Wondering when and where
    Will he stumble and drop my heart
    Breaking it into a million scattered pieces
    I just can't afford it
    With the rising cost of a broken heart

    So I remember
    Search through my Rolodex of sorrows
    For the common theme of my failed relationships
    So I will be able to sidestep the pain
    Watch it disappear in my rearview mirror
    And acquaint it with my back by putting it behind me
    Although I'm enamored with him
    I just can't help but remember

    We want love and all the joy it brings, but to risk having our heart broken again, that's something we want to avoid at all costs. Very vivid scribing here, well done.

    The Hurt From those Of the Past, still haunting the Life of our present. So sad how even one even can dictate life change of a person. Be in Ruin or rescue. Whoa...Flow on Poet
