My mind only wishes to be free,
From the death grip that is your memory.
Those eyes, burning with flames of my own desire.
That smile.
Those lips, so perfectly adjacent to the soft spot held by you in my heart.
From me, I need you to flee.
Drain my brain, take yourself away and smile.
Don't come back,
Just to cause my heart to wither and crumble.
