    The city sleeps
    Tucked in her bed
    Thoughts of you
    Tangle my head
    Forceing my feet
    Paceing the streets
    Why can't I forget you?
    These memories defeat
    Any chance I might have
    Of forgetting your face
    Your lingering smell
    My unwilling escape
    You were nothing but danger
    Since the first time I tasted
    Now I battle the anger
    Its only been wasted
    One last emotion
    One more attempt
    Pointless devotion
    Ends in contempt
    Why can't I forget you?
    Why can't I let go?
    Dont you know how I miss you?
    I've no place to go
    These feet keep on paceing
    Trudging the time
    Thats ticking against me
    I still look behind
    While the city still sleeps
    Streets cold and empty
    My lonely heart beats
    How could you forget me?

  3. I don't think... I don't...that you've been forgotten - just that the other is still trying to find their own way. Curse me if I'm wrong - you're not forsaken.
    Cross my heart and hope to die (and we don't use those terms loosely 'round here...)
