faded hues
like the past love
once between
you and me

i remember it
alone on winter nights
just like these
hollow to the bone

you were suppose to be
forever for my soul
a presence in the ugly
yet here we be

does my memory linger
in your silent hours
like a lasting fear
that never goes away

does she understand
no matter what you do
that first snowfall
will always be mine

it hurts inside
to think you forgotten
so do not tell me
any different

be internally haunted
solemnly miserable
unable to escape
the last moment we shared

because it plays
on an endless loop
through my memory
as december comes

your finale promise
the one you never kept
that leaves me frozen
unable to move on
