Takes Me Back

by, Cassandra

Black on white, melodic sounding,
take, takes me back to when
there was good in this life
and the melodic sounds
would sing me to sleep.

Now, I'm stuck listening to myself
and the voices echoing in my head
fighting amongst themselves.
Trying, always trying to take over
and make me cry myself to sleep.

With memories playing on repeat,
in black and white, soundless;
take, taking me back to when
you were still here, always here,
singing me to sleep.

And I'm trying and failing
to forget all about you.
And I'm tripping and falling
trying to run from you,
screaming me to sleep.

Come on now, don't be shy.
You know me like you know yourself.
Come on now, don't you lie.
I know you like I know myself.
You're laughing me to sleep.

Black on white, melodic sounding,
take, takes me back to when
there was good in this life
and the melodic sounds
would sing me to sleep.
