Haunted Memories #poetry

It’s been years
since our bodies
embraced the moment.
You were the queen,
who I gave everything.

I have long been dethroned,
My crown shattered like my heart.
Your royalty,the pleasure of someone else.

You speak to me still,
the words are the same.
“I don’t love you” cuts
even deeper today.

As the sun succumbs
to the primal urges of the moon,
you take shape. A seductive
mist caressing each heartbeat.

A love long gone,
yet it still remains.
Free me of these,
haunted memories.
