Retreat

 

 

 

 

Requiem for Yesterday

Within the thoughts of wounded minds

lie the means to transend time

blurring the nows and thens,

rewinding the lights that lit our eyes.

Tears brim over and spill again

sending us back until they dry.

moments of memoy live and die,

and laugh inside of what had been.

But what could have been?

What, why, made night's stars dim?

What road was meant to never drive?

That we took without a thought or hint?

laughter and love, and life alive,

living behind our soul's dark sky

like a jewel that softly glints,

or a knife pressed against our side.

Killing us with yesterday.
