Destined For Closure

Its funny how I forgot myself
Remembering everything about you
I forgot all the old parts of my life
With you I began spinning life anew

You played along beautifully
Committing to me without a promise
You cleared my doubts with your smile
Answered my questions with a kiss

I was lost in your hypnotic spell
Hungry for your touch to be whole
You never let me inside your web
I was left thirsty for your soul

You loved me in more ways than one
But your hesitation pushed me away
You wanted me all for yourself
Yet for me, you never paved the way

You were stuck among your demons
I could have helped, if you'd let me
You shunned me away from everything else
You love and passion was all I could see

Your madness reached crazy heights
I remained captured in your maze
You were turning into a stranger
Our love story became a blurry haze

Slowly I started forgetting you
I brought 'me' back in the foreground
You were reduced to a distant memory
In letting you go, myself I found

No more hunger, no more thirst
I feel wholly satisfied and content
Your love for me was an illusion
Which left on my heart a deep dent

Today I kill you in my thoughts
I'm moving on to a better tomorrow
You are better left buried in my head
Like some long forgotten sorrow

Now that I think of it
I do not know how we came closer
One thing I'm sure of is
We were destined for closure

This poem is written for Theme Thursday's theme 'Thirsty'.
