I can hear your lonely footsteps
Down the hallways of my mind.
No freedom from your presence…
It seems that I can find.
If I can’t have you with me-
Why can’t you set me free?
Instead of your old memories-
Which keep on haunting me?
You’re there each night beside me
Yet when I reach, I find….
My bed is cold and empty…
I’m about to lose my mind.
I sense your presence near me,
Each time I start the car…
I almost reach to hold you…
Then remember where you are.
I set two plates for dinner…
When I sit and watch T. V.—
I often say, “Did you see that”?
Why are you haunting me?

seems we often have no control on letting go. the heart has a mind and memory of its own... something you captured so well in this poem.

Wonderful, Slinger~
I particularly liked ...
'I can hear your lonely footsteps
Down the hallways of my mind.'

So very well done, my friend.

Excellent lines here, 'slinger. This could be a good C&W song with little work.
