Love Poem: Lifelong

Written by: Melani Udaeta


Woven into my hair the taste of smoke, 
an unnerving scent that just hangs around; 
I’m never far from this forgotten song 
with lyrics in my head I start to choke,
unable to breathe I fall to the ground; 
Fighting so hard but now I can’t be strong; 
Salty tears and a crying kiss goodbye
still I am instantly moved by the sound; 
I bled too much and learned you were lifelong;
Can’t escape you no matter how I try 
                 for long.
