30 of 30: Love, Loss and Erasure

As each track passes me by
So did all the memories we chose to leave behind
One song plays after another
Telling stories of our distant past
I drifted off to the very first night
You held me tight in your arms
Each memory progressed right before my eyes
Somehow, as a familiar track played
I wondered why you couldn’t have just stayed
Now as the playlist comes to an end
I’ve come to the realization
That what just happened was but a story
About how we loved, how I lost you
And how much I wanted to erase
All traces of you.
