Temporary Relief

I crave the pain in watching you,

walk away-

You're timeless in your value,

I've easily forgotten the day-

Once your silhouette dissipates,

I'm back to reality-

Deprived the cure of this cancerous place,

Walking back into a world of maladies-

Friend, family or women,

But those hours in your company, you become everything in that visit-

Stay for a while

The leave for the time being-

So my memory can paint in your smile,

While you see the pain in my eyes leaving.
