The Haunting

I burn within
Still these years later
She haunts my life
But not as a ghost
She left a mark upon my heart
Her words drew me in
Her eyes cast a spell
But deep scars left behind were carved
And I still long
For her
I still hear her voice
And when I catch her scent
She is all I ever imagined
That God could ever have sent
But she haunts me
Every thought
Every move
Every time she isn't near
My heart is wounded within
By and by
Thick and thin
My life goes on
But for the haunting
But for the memories
Of perfection taunting me
I long for her
Looking for a lover's touch
I long for her
But I shall never
Be restored
Never be redeemed
Of this pain
Of this dream
That never fades
I long for her
And always will
