He Only Exists in Memories

My world ended

So why was it still spinning?

Darkness crept in

So why was there still light?


How can the Earth still spin

And a candle still burn

When his heart's stopped beating?


How can my heart beat

Knowing his has been defeated?

How do I get over such a feat?


How can I look into someone's eyes

When they're his exact azure?

How can I ever tell myself,

How can I accept the sad fact?


And how dare I.

How dare I forget the crinkle around his eyes

As I made him laugh.

Oh his laugh.

I've already forgotten his laugh.


And his voice.

Oh his voice.

I've already forgotten his voice.

It's decomposing along with his body.
