Oh Memory.

How you haunt me

I know your there

so I can be free.


But what are you?

but a memory?

I think back

and I cry

And I know why…


So much pain

I’ve been torn asunder

death and blood

the sound of thunder,


Broken bones

Broken teeth

broken me,

All in memory…


What have I learned

you ask? You see?

I’ve learned to take

my memory to task

woe is me…


Because it’s nothing more

than a memory

It’s there

so I can be free.
