Memories Fade

January 12, 2021

Late summer ice cream cones
Staying up past midnight talking on the phone
You sending heart emojis when I felt alone
We're falling, but in retrospect, look how we've grown

We're mature enough to know that this will never last
But we're young so we keep trying to hold on to our past
Every second is a bullet hole and I can't let you bleed
So I'll let you go even though you're all I'll ever need

Here's hoping memories fade
Looking into obsidian eyes lined with jade
Wishing back all wishes that I have ever made
I love sunlight but I can't get burned in the shade

Sitting there in silence, running fingers through my hair
Impatient checking on the clock, forgetting that you used to care
That fiery passion in your eyes, I see it isn't there
I knew what I got into, no one said that love was fair

I know that this is over, yet I still want to drag it on,
is it because I'm afraid of how I'll feel after you're gone?

Here's hoping memories fade
Looking into obsidian eyes lined with jade
Wishing back all wishes that I have ever made
I love sunlight but I can't get burned in the shade

So I'm praying that your next girl will one day hold your ring
That you'll walk her down the aisle as an angel chorus sings,
I hope she'll make you happy, and I hope she'll set you free
I'm just sorry that that dream girl isn't me

Here's hoping memories fade
Looking into obsidian eyes lined with jade
Wishing back all wishes that I have ever made
I love sunlight but I can't get burned in the shade
 
An impromptu song that I thought of in the shower! I've never even been a relationship, so I don't know if this is any good, but my life isn't interesting, so I just...made up a scenario? Is that wrong? I don't know.
Anyways, let me know what you think. Loads of love <3

    First of all, great rhyming. It is true that memories fade :(
    re: That really sucks, I'm sorry you had to deal with such a terrible friend. I would also like sleepovers a lot better if we ate pizza AND ACTUALLY WENT TO SLEEP (does anyone actually sleep at sleepovers?)

    Its beautiful and conveys a lot of emotions. I'm surprised you've never been in a relationship. Although the funny thing is someone told me things along these lines sometime ago.

    It's not that they fade, but that you learn to let them go. Sure, you make memories, but we are not programmed to cherish them.
