My Faded Melody Still Plays For You

by Void   Nov 28, 2007

Pen on my paper, words on my lips
and only a teardrop of ink left to give.
I'll squeeze it, I'll etch it -take blood from my heart.
Just to show you the side of me, that's been torn apart.

I'll paint you a picture, with the brush I have made.
The piece of my soul, that - for you- has remained.
It's stayed for your smile, but is only one bristle strong
-Yet it dances with colour (that's been yours all along)

The wick of my spirit, disappears in your flame
-but when I fade away, I'll remember your name.

Pen on my paper, words on my lips
This tiny bit left of me, is all I can give.

Dedicated for those of you who love someone, unconditionally, with nothing returned.

    Very well-constructed piece. You write with detailed and specific imagery that is right on. I know I haven't been around in a while but I'm thinking of coming back to writing even though my stay here was brief as it was before. Nice to see you're still writing.

    Love the images you've given - -teardrop of ink- -words on my lips-

    -Just to show you the side of me, that's been torn apart.- feels like.. the writer, really wants-needs to other to feel and see that
    -torn apart- as if desperate.

    The emotion you put into that was phenominal, I liked how you devoted it to a group of lost lovers... I also really liked the little piece of personification (If thats the right word) you put into it: the painting, brush, paint ect.

    another great one
