Then there was me

and existence went empty
so did the soul, unforeseen
leaving faith for just a instant
to never let it return again
forgot it was near, once

haunted by time
without feeling alive
still the wanting is sweeter
than the letting go

I try to stay
here and now
unforgiven
in so many ways

but memories
keep me away from tomorrow
deprived of today..
