Hiding From Memories

Hiding from memories, that's what I do,
Trying so hard to get over you,
Like flashbacks from nightmares, they hit and run,
I know this misery has only begun,

They buzz in my mind like angry bees,
Bringing me down to my knees,
I don't have the strength to get back up,
Of this thing called love, I've had enough,

My heart is too tender to be touched by another,
The flame burning for you, I cannot smother,
I am being haunted by these memories of you,
I run but they chase me, that's what they do,

Like stars that shine bightly then fade away,
I feel my light grow dimmer each day,
And soon I shall vanish just like the dew,
Hiding from memories, trying to get over you,
