renegades

my memories of him won’t go
anywhere they don’t want to
by now they’re like renegades
who’ve betrayed me and
taken lives all their own
maybe it’s just first love
maybe it’s finding my soul mate
and then losing him again
maybe it brought out the best and the worst in me…
but if it’s also the sweetest thing i’ve ever known
then who says i have to put the memories away?
who says i can’t keep them with me always?
they mean too much now to relegate them
to some dark and lonely tomb
where they never see the light of the perfect Sun
just lost to the mists of time
as if they meant nothing
when they still mean everything
because memories of him
are all i have left now
and when they take me
then they take me
they shake me
and there’s not a damn thing i could do about it
if i even wanted to……
