No matter what I try to do
To erase the memory of your kiss,
The feeling of your sweet caress,
Still, your maddening touch haunts me. 

Though I try to burn away the memories
Of the intense love we once shared,
Passion that closed the miles between us,
I only sear your brand deeper upon my soul. 

No matter the one I’m with now
When I close my eyes it’s you I see
You I touch, you I kiss, you I love,
And I fear – I’ll never be free. 

Though I try to forget all the times we had
In the still moments of silence, I sense it,
Your melodic voice drifting on the wind,
A dark form lurking in the shadows of my heart.
