Refused To Be Denied

How did he ever think
that someone else could
take her place...?
No one had her healing quality.

Without her, life became no more
that teetering up the brink
of all of the despondency
he never faced before.

One lost and lonely memory
refused to be denied.
It whispered that he'd
always love her so.

Underneath, his breaking heart
would never let her go.
Worst of all, the fact
that he could never let her know.

Awake, asleep, pretending
something other.
Holding it all in,
his spirit smothered.

How did he ever think
that someone else could
take her place...?
No one had her healing quality...
