*The Saddest Memory*

“G”  is for Grief

I hope
that somewhere in this cold world
there is a cure
against the evil darkness
You and I
as the autumn leaves
maybe are falling
to the ground

I’ve tried to find the key
of the black cover that holds you
in its cold embrace
I failed
A love was born
among the strong words
inviting me into the magic world
We  were two strangers
suited so well together
yet
our love was not enough
The weakness was larger
it never won over fears
In stead of staying alive
together
we’ve chosen to slowly die
Alone
You’ve become a dead poet
but for me still immortal
The one from my dream

I was prepared to haunt you forever
So I guess we’ll be good darling
I’ll  find you again
In another life
