Memories of Love--By Adam Levon Brown--United States

Memories of Love

I never wanted you to leave
but it seems it was in your cards

Pain has dulled to a cool numb after
all of these years

I sit and remember the laughs we had
and the times we shared

It bites at my core, the way we became I
and I became something I didn't even recognize

Broken promises and broken dreams
led to a full heart and a new, better dreams

But I still remember the times where I
thought you were everything

I experienced the sharpest pain I have ever felt
and greater joy than I had ever imagined possible

I made it through the paradoxical maelstrom
that is first love
