Here You Come Again ©

Here you come again

knocking down my walls

pretending that I still love you

finding out that I still do.

You come with the lyrics of romantic songs

and linger with the notes

while describing the anecdotes

that should be long gone.

No matter how hard I try

memories bring our love back to life

back into my heart

far away from my present and my mind.

Here I go again

letting myself go

embracing your presence

and reminiscing about our world.

You come with the words of other’s lovers songs

and your aroma lingers with the notes

that describe profound love

the one that made us fall.

So here we are again

and again I think of you

my possession and my obsession

my lover yet my tormentor.

You come with some words

you come with some notes

memories become the melody of my own song

and my heart dances for a bit more.

And  we are together again

and I feel what I felt back then

when our love was pure and serene

when deception was not your friend.

Again and again

I find you in my head

and we dance together

while we feel the air.

Again and again you come into my world

attached to the lyrics of old song

and so does the love

and so does the sob.

Again and again

I remember you

abandoning me

leaving me behind and never looking back.

But I can’t say that I miss you

because I truly don’t

It is me whom I do miss

feeling free to love without fears.

You come with the lyrics of old songs

and with you and with your love

come the deception

the pain that has been long gone.

Here I am again

knowing that you are my past

and that I no longer want

the promises of deceiving lies.

You come with the words of  lovers songs

and sometimes with a melody of my own

pretending that I still love you

finding out that I still do.

But freeing my love from hurt

vanishes your presence in my soul

it liberates me from the boredom

of thinking of us as one world.

Here I go again

letting you inside my head

and again, I’m letting ourselves go

like we did yesterday.
