dVerse April 16, 2013 - Amnesia

Forget-me- not Free-photos.org uk


They say everything eventually fades away
the evanescence of love, dissolves in the mist
need to preserve the fragile images in my mind
don't wanna be a transparent figurine
caught in a world somewhere in between
your words were love, your touch a drug
close your eyes recall a dream we were there once
now, I wanna scream
wanna scream

Babe, don't you see what you mean to me
Don't you see what you do to me
Don't you see what my body needs
My Babe, suffer Amnesia, Amnesia
Amnesia of the heart...
Need to bring him back to me....

Tender smiles melted snow capped miles
lost memories fluttered in a gentle breeze
love so intense it brought me to my knees
tracing moments of tender affection
transparent lost in a world somewhere in between
need a fix, shadowy descent of slipping time
breathless, I cannot breathe
now, I'm chokin', chokin '
on shattered dreams, shattered dreams

Repeat chorus:

Was it a distorted illusion or some sort of delusion
seductive visions of yesterday creep in my head
like a wreath of smoke, a circle of hope
inhaling the intoxicating aroma, tryin' to cope

a tormented kiss, an affair of the heart
waitin' for your return in a world in between
remembering we're better, we're better together
now, I wanna recall, recall
a lover's dream...

Author's note:  A poetic verse in song...


  1. this has def. a song-like quality... great flow and very intense emotions as well...so sad when love, when the other drifts away and we feel what means so much slips from the hands...

    1. Hi Claudia,

      I wrote it as a poem first then felt it was more of a song as I could hear it playing in my head.

  2. Funny...I also "sang" as I was reading. It is easily "tuneable"...of course, Claudia is a musician--HEY! So am I!


    1. Steve E,

      Thanks for dropping in..yeah, I do like to write a song now and then.

  3. What a perfect song... melodies are playing as I read it, and isn't it real that love just fades away. Amnesia of the heart... It needs a reminder or two.

    1. Bjorn,

      Thanks so much! Well, I guess we can always hope that love can find it's way back.

  4. smiles...not a bad kinda amnesia eh? smiles...you def got a nice lyrical quality to this...an affair of the heart...ack..double meaning in that as well...love doesnt just happen you know...

    1. Brian,

      Always nice to see your smile here..thanks for stopping in and the reply.

  5. Oh such visions can be grand
    Unless they go to scary land
    But to each their own
    As you sing in tone
    Now I'll leave you alone
    As you seduce in case there is a groan lol

    1. Pat,

      You are late at my mat
      usually, you are first
      with your rhyming verse
      take care Pat and his cat
      see you tomorrow at your flat

    2. Blogger shunned you
      Never showed up in the blogroll at my zoo

    3. Pat,

      What is this I was a no show (lol)
      I will have to go visit your zoo and
      see what is what..as you are on my
      daily rounds for a chuckle or two
      wouldn't miss a day to read what you say

    4. The Cat
      Was asleep
      On his Mat.

  6. I like it! Have you put it to music? If not, you should!

    1. Hi,

      I am sorry to say no music yet..but, I do hear it in my head.

  7. Very nice beat and chorus ~ Perhaps you can do a reading too ~

    Good to see you Truedessa ~

    1. Hi Grace,

      Thanks so much! A reading that might be fun..

  8. It's wonderful... I'd love to hear it performed!

  9. This poem definitely begs to be read! Love the way you wrote this...I can hear that chorus!

  10. The chorus is the icing! It's a whiff of freshness from the usuals that one gets. Wonderfully written Trudessa!


  11. ...fantastic my friend! ...i can imagine the first part being wrapped then followed by a melo r&b like rhythm in chorus... i may at times easily write a poem but to write / compose a song is something superbly done by superb people like you... ha... i remember back in college humanities class... my professor set a raffle box... inside were folded coupons of the possible tasks we would be doing for the class over the whole period of 2 hours... i was hoping to pick 'ode' or 'idylls' but unfortunately i got the coupon containing 'song'... so had no choice but to compose one back then... & how could i compose one in 2 hours? ha... well it turned out really sounding awkward.... haha... it was written in my native language & couldn't remember where i placed it now... lol... just sharin'... smiles... i have enjoyed your song... keep 'em coming...

    1. Hi Kelvin,

      Thanks so much for sharing your story. I have always enjoyed writing poems and songs. I guess it is just how the spirit moves me at the moment. Sometimes, an idea will just pop into my head and I'll run with it. I am a dreamer so many of my poems/songs come to me in the early morning hours when I am in that in between state of mind. You my friend are a gifted poet and I always enjoy your work. I think you have many miles to travel and will leave imprints along the road of your journey. Perhaps, there is a song within you waiting to be sung.

      Thanks for the delightful comment..I always enjoy stories within the realm of one's life.

      Bright Dreams!

  12. "Was it a distorted illusion or some sort of delusion", I wish I had written that, Truedessa. Nice flow to this.


    1. Pamela,

      Thanks you so much!

  13. The lover's lament...love lost and recalled. How we yearn for our affections to be returned, and how painful when they are not. A lovely song.

    1. Thank you for reading my work, it is appreciated.

  14. Brilliant imagery in this. It should be set to music. Great job, I love it!

    1. Thank you for reading and your kind rely. I am happy you enjoyed my song.

  15. I love poetic verses in a song.
    I always jump up when I hear one come along.

    Amnesia. My late Granny suffered from it. I, too, suffer from it. It's genetic. I keep losing my car. (You may laugh now.) It's terrible. Strangely enough....
    when it comes to love, I remember e.v.e.r.y.t.h.i.n.g..

    1. Hi,

      So, glad you enjoyed my poetic song. Always nice to make one jump. What is this about losing your car? Sorry about your memory lapse but, at least you remember everything about love how magical that loved touched you so deep that you retained every moment.

      May all your memories be special ones..
