My phantom...

By CraveThePain

The memory of a dream
Years of decay left a rotten wish

A kiss haunted by the past
Drowned by the eternal rain

Apathy the lone survivor of the battle
Pride it's conquest

Still the memory sets me on fire
Not my only phantom

But the one that brings me to my knees....

    ...Perhaps the only way to feel anymore is to burn... I liked this short piece, it has a huge punch at the end :)
