Use me

Use me

For I am a forgotten wish

A shiny coin tossed in a beaten well

The pretty petals plucked from a dainty flower

Stunning stars sprinkling the sapphire sky

That once held your gaze and granted your wish

Now hidden in the light of a new day

While you search for happiness in the sun

 

Use me

For my body is nothing more than dust and wind

I can damage your soul in a whirlwind of hate

Like a tornado spiraling out of control

With no direction and even less grace

An earthquake that claims more than you were willing to give

Crumbling your world into the very dust

You once left me in when you walked away

 

Use me

For my mind is as wicked as it is magnificent

Like a terrifying predator ripping through its kill

Smearing rich blood on its exotic coat

A fleeting romance that ends in woeful heartache

A love letter that turns ugly

Sealed with my signature red lips

Because I have no shame

 

Use me

For I have held your fickle heart in mine

Like a golden locket without a picture

A withering book with faded words and lost pages

The midnight sky with no moon in sight

A bed with two pillows and a vacant side

A lifeless body missing its soul

And just like that, you’ve rendered me empty

Long Lost Soul

Sometimes in my dreams, I see myself in the house I used to live in as a child

But sometimes I see another house and I imagine it was my home in a past life

And sometimes I see myself in a whole other place with someone I don’t know

Someone familiar, and I feel as though I was connected to them at some point, in some way

Like an old love from another life or a best friend when my soul resided in another body

 

My mind doesn’t remember them when I wake up but my heart knows them very well

I find myself wishing I could run into their soul again in this life

Would they remember me too? Would they feel me and know I used to belong to them?

Would they feel the urge to have me once more?

Would I?

Maybe they would remember the bad between us in our old life together

Then again, maybe they would feel only the good and we could relive our best days over

 

If you had the chance to reconnect with a familiar soul from another life, would you?

I would tell them my heart remembers them

She recognizes their heart and the twinkle their soul leaves behind in their stunning eyes

I’ll remember what it feels like when their heart beats for me as I feel it again

 

Long lost soul, if you’re out there right now, I feel you, I remember you

Do you dream of me too? Do you think of the way I made you feel many years ago?

Do you catch yourself standing alone in the shower telling me you don’t know me but you miss me?

I do

I hope someday we can feel it again

I hope you find me and remind me with a single kiss

In this life or another, come back to me
