One Last Time

Someday your memories will cease to affect me
Someday you’ll be walking down the same lane
With your arm tightly wrapped around her
You’ll look at her how you looked at me once
Someday I’ll find someone who’d string words together
Beautifully, for me
I’ll go to bed reading something he wrote
And dream about the world he would create
Someday you’ll find someone who would accompany you in your sweet melodies
And I’ll be with someone who will know what is wrong even before I say something
Someday we’ll make love work

But not today, today I’ll drown myself
Deep in the turbulence of what we’ve become
I’ll revisit our walks, hand in hand
Our drunken escapades
How those long drives leading to nowhere
We’re more meaningful than this rumble
Of self depreciation and pity that we’ve made
One last time tonight
I’ll shed some tears
Laugh a little
And go to sleep holding on to the lovely memories
I have of you
When everything else is falling apart around me
