~ Just another day ~
By: Lilith Melody Tegrin

Another day begins, I have no scent to remind me of things I once
cherished, no lingering taste on my lips.
The touch of a hand on my back is only that of a ghosts.
I'm unsure if I can remember your face when you looked at me, your voice
when the words flowed so freely from your mouth, breathing and speaking
of promises that would always remain unfulfilled.
I believed for so long... I was such a fool for you. You could do no wrong
and still can't, it seems I'm under a spell that cannot be broken....perhaps
one that has turned into a curse.
You will always be my one true regret.
The ghost that haunts my dreams and the reason I awake screaming in
terror coated in a cold sweat.
I whimper and twitch in my sleep as if I am some beaten animal.
But...there is nothing I can do or say to change a thing.
I am left with the nightmare that was once a beautiful dream, a broken
world that once held so much for me.
I am becoming more broken as I move along, picking up scraps of who i
used to be...
I will never truly get that one special part of myself back though, I know
this for sure.
.....It was you......

But when the clouds covered the light and the rain began to pour,i disappeared from the day.
Leaving you to stare into another's eyes,as i am left in the hollowed out darkened world.
I see myself in reflections that shatter every time a tear drop hits the puddle.
I see you all but your reflections never ripple and fade as mine do.
The sun reappears from its darkened hiding place.
I see i am standing where she is,as you lean in and kiss her so gently on the lips.
I thought we were the same...But now i see i am only her shadow.
How could i have made this mistake? I ponder,but only for one second more as the sun fades
behind the clouds and i am once again in this hollow world of mine.
