(Poetry) Guilt

Guilt

Well I’ve tried
But I haven’t beaten the memories yet
I would if I could
But I can’t
Get you out of my mind
I want you to live up to yourself
I want to see you smile.

Just call my name in ecstasy
Forget my name and come next to me
I want you to get it together
And get out of my mind
To float amongst forgotten dreams
And live up to yourself and smile.


Ghosts don’t always want forgiveness
That’s a belief of a guilty mind
But if I believe your fiction
Does that mean I share your guilt?
Or am I guilty anyway
For wanting more than I have.
For wanting more than I deserve?

I don’t know why I still remember you
With the fondness that I do
There’s no reason I can think of
Unless I’m asking forgiveness
Or trying to forget such actions
That may have hurt either of us.

 Well I’ve tried
But I haven’t beaten the memories yet
I would if I could
But I can’t
Get you out of my mind
I want you to live up to yourself
I want to see you smile.

 I’ve no wish for tears
Or for another sunset
With the dead of a thousand lovers
Standing on the sand
Looking, lost and lonely
Pretending everything’s fine.
