It's the color of the sun on a cloudless day.  It's the color of her hair like straws in hay.  It's the color of the flowers in which you lay.  It's the color of the stars above as she whispers, 'Make me stay'.   
Can't eat, can't sleep. My head is numb, and so are my feet. This is gonna hurt, yes this is going to hurt for a very long time. I can't remember, but I don't want to forget. Your smile, your laugh, everything about you so hard to get.
Mi Sol, Oh how I miss Your mysterious brown eyes Like a dark starless night. I love how you rub your scruffy beard Upon my soft, gentle cheek.  
Where are you when the remembering brings me to my knees? The firework of your kiss reignites over and over, sizzling in my chest and sounding in my recesses. Your touches on my temples swirl in my brain,
Okay, that's enough of that I think that my mind has finally had enough of you I'm so very done with your shit (Pardon my language) In truth, I'm not even sure if It's your shit I'm done with
My thoughts Are falling down my throat -- I didn’t want them to tip over.
This is an image of my past as you can see.   I'm not the entire focus.  I'm one of many people.   Taken years ago, you look upon it and it appears to be taken on a regular summer day.  
I am the opposite of amnesia,

I laid with you in a field A field full of memories  green  This is the field I have run through half naked Peed on trees  Played loads of games. But on this night 
True love isn't as easy to find,
  Asleep In a Dream             Green at bay, painted blue in spray             Land rolls up and down             Brisk, chilled, mellow
  You left me a Kiss of Love             Like a dove             You lips were smooth             Fresh and clean             Coming onto me            
  A Time With Family             All around             So many faces             Among many many friends             First among last  
  Gone Away but Why Not Stay             Once upon a time             You and I             Close in ties             Bond and all            
  Watch What I Become             Smile with relish             Together we still are             Mountains tower between us
  Appreciated In Past Future             Stolid with rare vigor             Honorable with freed absolution             Rising from the chasm
A vessel of beacons             Casting a shier light             Brighter than any             Forecasting the oceans             Wobbled by deception  
A little girl use to laugh at jokes he told her  Even if she didn't understand a word  She use to try to mimic back every joke she learned  Bet he had a ball laughing at all her little failures 
Sometimes I can't breathe When you're walking next to me. Sometimes you just have to take a chance and just say 'Hello'.   You smile at me and I smile back,

Remember this And Remember it well For it may only be remembered once   Look at me What do you see?
Remember the joy, And remember the fun, All of the days we had in room 161.   How we laughed and joked together, And broke many of the rules, But how we couldn't have helped it

I am not a girl Who loses her head over- Some boy- who smiles at her-                just                      so. You caught me by suprise An emotional accident, anomaly

Even flowers that give the sweetest scent Must one day wither away. But will you remember how strong they stood Before their ultimate decay?   The future seems full of many days

When the wind blew through the September skyline, With the grass seemingly floating- soft and golden- I could have sworn that I saw you. Wonderful you, sitting underneath the willow Your hands wide open.  
A little marble Found by a young boy on the stairs Interest is found for a little while Then, not lost, The interest diffuses But the boy still keeps it On his desk
Pen on paper, Black on white, Alone and bored on that day I reached inward And created a few companions, They laughed and played On sun-lit beaches As I smiled and looked on I gave my creations
