X marks the spot

I need no letters, for they are sure to fade.

I have simply memorised all that you ever said.

Your smile will never be hard to find,

For it is simply etched in my mind.

Your touch is forever safe within

The withering layers of my skin.

But what would i do if time ever stole

Away from me, your treasured soul?

So I simply cross my heart

And remember always, X marks the spot.

When thoughts began to rhyme,
And lines found a heartbeat,
I transformed from a dentist to a poet.

X factor

Yours, Painfully.
