THERE IS NO RETURN

The wistful dreams of,
Once upon a time,
Grow persistent,
As each day passes.
The dreams so sweet,
But only mere memories,
Of days gone by,
Never to return.
How I wish,
Time flowed two ways,
And I could go back,
To the times of joy,
Where I was free.
Now I'm imprisoned,
In my own mind.
Can't get out of the gloom,
That suffocates me.
From my pale flesh,
Scarlet tears flow freely,
And there is no return,
To the way things were.
