Memories are still alive,
despite parting ways,
as if our love was fake.

I gave you love,
but in return
your life gave me hurt.

The addiction that my life had for you
is still pounding inside my heart,
and dancing inside my life like Shakira.

Pretending to be fine is just a word inside my mind,
for my lungs can’t breathe without your presence,
for you are my oxygen.

My mind keeps on whispering
to the love that we shared
when our hands could
feel the love that we shared each other.

My eyes see that the love that we shared
in each other’s hearts wasn’t real
for it is now gone like the soldiers
who said goodbye in a war.
