I Still Absolutely Adore You


I still absolutely adore you.
The impact of those moments together,
Those moments that feel so insignificant now,
Those moments that are on the edge of my forehead,
Ready to jump
To fall away.
But my beating heart pulsates pushing the memories back to my core,
I can’t let you go.
You were everything to me once,
And I know many have said that before,
But every atom of my being aches for you,
My veins rush with an unforgotten love for you,
I still absolutely adore you.

There’s a bitterness that seeps into the fibres of my being,
The sour taste of you leaving,
Is a memory still reverberating,
I hate how much I still absolutely adore you.
I’ve cried tsunamis over you,
I’ve felt earthquakes for you,
I’ve trekked through deserts to get over you,
But I still absolutely adore you.

You set my heart on fire,

But just left me there to burn,

I’m nothing but evaporated wax,

And scattered ash,

The remains of love.


You see, if there was ever such a thing as “the one”,

Then it’s you,

Darlin’ it’s you,

You’re my one,

But i’m not yours.


Peeling away at my vulnerability,
I sense you within a hairs breadth,
I feel the warmth of your breath,
Don’t add me as a friend on Facebook,
Don’t let me text you when I’m drunk,
Let’s just bump into each other,
And recreate an idealistic love.
I’m afraid to seek you out,
I’m terrified of letting the idea of you drop,
I’m scared of admitting,
That i’m still
in love.

I can feel it in my bones,
An adoration that leaks out of my pores.
A love that excels the tips of my fingers and toes,
An emotional stir that has me stripped to the floors,
I still absolutely adore you.

It’s all love lust and pixie dust,
What becomes of us will be done and dusted,
Feelings rusted,
Hearts busted,
Trying to muster the courage,
To move on and fall in love with somebody else.
Casual relationships seems to be the answer,
But alas once they’re cancelled I realise that’s not what I’m after,
I thought that rather than getting fucked over,
I’d just not care and get my leg over,
And fuck for pure pleasure,
But I found no pleasure.
Because I still absolutely adore you.
