I Get Like This Sometimes

Autumn leaves cover the lawn
A naked maple's clothes
They rustle in the breeze at dawn
Warning of the coming cold
Just like them our time had come
To drop the romance we'd outgrown

(build)
This ol house was our first care
Painting rooms making repairs
Key's still there under the mat
Near the porch chairs where we sat

Chorus:
But I get like this sometimes
Thinking bout you fills my mind
Your black hair and your red lips
The scent of you when we kissed
Your fancy soaps in the shower
Making love, talking hours

Kitchen looks so bare at breakfast
Eatin toast makes a lonely crunch
A voiceless time but who'd guess
We'd grow tired of being one
And we tried hard to make the best
Of what was left of our lost love

(build 2)
Last year we vacationed camping
Sang songs by the fire beautifully
But the whole thing left us hanging
Without love, just friends in need

Chorus:
But I get like this sometimes
Thinking bout you fills my mind
Your black hair and your red lips
The scent of you when we kissed
Your fancy soaps in the shower
Making love, talking hours

Wind chimes ring on the patio
Your image drifts out of sight
Took the long way but now we know
Sometimes lovers aren't for life
Birds in the feeder come and go
I feel alone but I'm alright

(build 3)
I'll miss all the holidays
But who knew when we started
Years later we would change
And time would find us parted

Chorus:
But I get like this sometimes
Thinking bout you fills my mind
Your black hair and your red lips
The scent of you when we kissed
Your fancy soaps in the shower
Making love, talking hours

true love never looks after it's own interests

This is good Eric,
I can appreciate your disappointment as having been disillusioned myself twice and hoping the third time is a charm. ~L

Thank you Lori life certainly has it's ups and downs for sure.
The melancholy memories are somewhat of a healer in a strange way.

I used to be the main character in the poem you wrote. But the years built a solid cellar-like place where I deposited the remainder of all of my dark moments which made me other that what  should've been. I persistently molded this fine poem of love lost, there are deeper and more danger waiting. Stay strong.

I loved this write . . .

Very sad but good writing, Eric. I haven't been on PIP for awhile. Nice to read you again. Not much of the old guard left.
