Erase your presence from my mind,
your smile, your laugh, frustrated sighs,
the way your glance made me feel high,
worn memories that made me cry.
Erase the promises you made,
such heartfelt words you soon betrayed,
rough arguments with tear cascades,
synchronized breaths we shared embraced.
Erase your lingered scent from me,
along with visions I still see,
remove the days that made us “we”,
so my heartache can find some ease.
Erase your love in every sense,
but true love always finds defense,
protective force is so immense,
it comes back growing more intense.
