The Time...

The time that it takes to remember,
The time that it takes to forget,
Do we exist to suffer?
Are we lost in a tangled net?

Why give me a glimpse of heaven,
Then release me to the depth of hell?
Why can't I be what I believe in?
What I have become, I cannot tell.

I run away from my sorrows.
I'm afraid to face my fears.
The crow in the sky that bellows,
Expresses my sadness and tears.

The time that it takes to remember,
The time that it takes to forget,
The hunger in my soul burns amber,
As I lock away my sorrows and regrets.
