Unwanted Memories

Unwanted Memories

I hear children's screams

Outside they're having fun

But in my head nobody knows

What those screams become

As the screams get louder

My mind is fit to burst

I get up out of my chair

Unsure what to do first

I pull the window shut

Draw the blinds and lie down

No happy emotion on my face

Just an unwanted frown

The memory dances in my mind

A tear rolls down my cheek

A child's scream is still heard

Like in the past of which I speak

A car goes past my house

I hear the screeching of breaks

This only makes the past worse

I'm unsure what else I can take
