Without You

Without You

It’s been eight years now
And feels nothing has changed
Certainly not how I feel
Certainly not the pain

And I know I’ve been wronged
Countless times before
But it was me who let go
Of what I so adored

I still think about you
Just about every day
I won’t lose the memories
They won’t fade away

Sometimes I hear a song
That brings you to mind
But my dreams are the real weight
More often I find

And I remember thinking
When we fell apart
You’ll haunt me forever
From inside my heart

I may have been right,
But without you,
I’d rather live with ghosts.

  I agree with Carousel. The last line sounds rhythmically anticlimatic. Try following it with another shorter line in the vein of the previous quatrains.

  That last line. It bucked me. I enjoyed the simplicity of the beginning and the thumping weight of the middle, but that last line feels all wrong.
