Ever Wishing Essence of You

The careful depiction of your decadent face, remains in my memory like the curtains you've stained.

Oh, how I wish that I'd stayed there that day.

Dreams of a simple summer breeze, linger within arm's reach.

The distant memory, the sentiment it keeps.

I kept them, not washed, but hidden from view. All to preserve the essence of you.

The nights are so long, there's no energy to sleep.

The pictures, they'll blur, the screen will go blank

Oh, the wind in your hair, how my heart nearly sank

when the wood of the pier, started to shake

I'm reminded of how every corner of the room paints the clearest image of you.

Now here I stand, alone in your bed, wishing its sheets felt like the sand.

Reminiscing, ever wishing, you'd hold my hand.

Colors, their hues can't express the pain, but the harsh truth of life, could never be grey.

I'll hold onto the cloth, I'll hold on to your melody

It hums through my veins, allows escape from the agony

The feeling of your hands caressing my face, burns my scalp like the fires that blaze.

Screams in my ear are all that remain, as I saunter through the closet today.

Oh, how the simplest of white shirts can paint my heart blue. How the almond shorelines once danced to you

The pictures, they'll start to blur, the screen will go blank

The wind in your hair, how my heart nearly sank

when the wood of the pier, started to shake

I'm reminded of how every corner of the goddamn room paints the perfect image of you.

Now here I sit, alone on the floor, wishing the carpet smelled like you once more.

Reminiscing, ever wishing, we'd be there by the shore.

Colors, their hues don't exist anymore. All I yearn, is for your frame to be up against the door.

I'll hold onto the cloth, I'll hold on to your melody

It hums through my veins, allows my escape from the cruelest of agony

Memories of a simple summer breeze, linger within my reach.

The distant memory, the sentiment it keeps.

They play on repeat, no scratch to its tune. All to preserve the essence of you.

The pictures, they'll blur, the screen will go blank

Oh, the wind in your hair, how my heart truly sank

When the wood of the pier, started to shake

I'm reminded of how every corner of the room paints the perfect image of you.

The crafted opinion of your family's disgrace, reminds me of the growth and challenges you faced.

I'll keep you forever, in my heart, soul, and brain

for the world that surrounds me, has shattered your name

Now here I lay, by myself in the sheets, wishing, just hoping, it was all just a dream.

Reminiscing, ever wishing, I'd wake from your heat.

Colors without hues, they urge to explore

The purest of love that made my heart soar.

I'll hold onto the cloth, I'll hold on to your melody

It hums through my veins, without escape from the agony

Oh, how the simplest of actions can paint my heart blue

They'll never truly know but a sliver of you

The careful depiction of your decadent face, remains in my memory like the curtains you've stained.

I'll keep them forever, I'll cherish their smell

Cherish the memories, the feelings, the stories, they tell

The days are so long, there's no energy to wake.

The pictures, they'll blur, the screen will go blank

Oh, the wind in your hair, how my heart nearly sank

when the wood of the pier, started to shake

I'm reminded of how every corner of the room paints the clearest image of you.

The hours tick by and by, there's no will left in me.

The sand, its all gone, I can't be near the sea

Oh, the wind in your hair, how my heart nearly sank

The memories I crave, near the woods by the bank

I'm reminded of how every corner of the world paints the clearest image of you.

Now here I remain, all by myself, wishing, just hoping, it was all just a dream.

Reminiscing, ever wishing, I'd wake from your heat.

Colors without hues, they urge to explore

The darkest of days, like the one just before.

I'll hold onto the blood, I'll hold on to its stains

It hums through my veins, like an eternal rain

Oh, how the simplest of actions can paint someone red

If only, just only, you'd not gone ahead

The cruelest depiction of that one fateful day, remains in my memory like the curtains you've stained.

I'll keep them forever, I'll cherish their smell

Cherish the memories, the feelings, the stories, they tell

The minutes tick by, there's no fight left in me.

The dreams, they're all gone, I can't be near the sea

Oh, the wind in your hair, my heart slipping with ease

Into the memories I crave, near the woods by the bank

I'm reminded of how every corner of the place paints the clearest image of your once perfect face.

The seconds tick by, there's no heart left in me.

The dreams, they're gone, I'm down on two knees

Oh, the wind in your hair, my heart slipping with ease

Into the love that I craved, near the woods by the bank

I'm reminded of how every corner of the place paints the clearest image of your once perfect face.

I'm not here right now, not one single cell, wishing, just hoping to be there when you fell.

No I can't be here now, I don't want to know how. I just need the one thing that I can't live without.

Reminiscing, ever wishing, we'd be holding hands.

No colors, no pictures, just one last demand

That the memory of you, holds in the sand.

I'll hold onto the curtains, I'll hold on to its stains

Let it whisper to me, let it cure my pain

Oh, how the simplest of fabrics melt in my brain

If only, just only, you'd not gone down the drain

The cruelest depiction of that one fateful day, remains in my memory like the curtains you've stained.

I cherish the sweet and caring embrace

Of the nightshade's everlasting taste

Let the pictures stay hung, on the mantle above,

Hold onto the comforting caress of your love.

Reminiscing, I envision, I'm holding your hand.

No colors, no pictures, just one last demand

That the memory of us, holds up in the sand.

The sky's gone too bleak, I don't understand

One final leap, no more secrets to keep

I'm now holding your hand

Kelly Alice I just want to be able to accurately portray the stories in my head. Most are dreams, but some are the ones that everyone needs to see. To experience a world aside from their own. All it takes is the power of one story, for one person to grow. ❤️

You definitely have potential. I liked it. PS: I think the hashtag of the contest is #TheMusicFromTheSoul. I think you are missing the word "The" at the beginning.
