Lost Within Your Memory

I feel so lost.
Drowning with the memory of you.
Shallow breaths,
that sometimes fail to escape my lips.
Struggling to breach the surface,
of the thoughts that try to engulf me.
I yearn to make sense,
of it all.
To be released from those dreams,
that show me what I don’t want to see.

There have been so many changes,
that they threaten to overwhelm me.
Each moment that passes,
brings me closer to finding that which I know I shouldn’t.
My heart keeps calling,
for that which it has always missed.
Craving to wrap my arms around the one thing,
I’ve always wanted the most.
Unable to forget the object of my enthrallment.
