Remember Me

by Neil Chatterton

Here I am
Standing around, feeling lost
Eyeing people in this crowd
All packed in and crushed together
Lights popping, music so loud.
Are you in here, like you said
For you are the only key
But here I see nothing that I want
Not even a smile
From someone, anyone
What’s in here for me?

Did you remember
What you whispered to me last night.

I hesitate at the bar, what should I order
Scared to be wrong
Scared to be right
Scared to even think
Noise level heading upwards
Useless without you
Need some air, just to be able to get through this moment.

Did you remember
What you whispered to me last night.

Nerves or steel
But, I’m no Superman
More like a third wheel to you
When your friends are over
Laughing and joking
It’s all about me,
Peeling away my feeling of bliss
Fingers prodding and poking
But they all know
You won’t even let me taste a kiss.

Did you remember
What you whispered to me last night.

Leaving this place
My shoulders rise and slump
Screw that crowd
With their out of time fist pumps.
No one cares about me now
I won’t even glance behind me
In case I see him snicker
Standing next to you
Knowing that you are now lost forever.

You never remembered
What you whispered to me last night.
