Reminisce or dream out loud

the cuffs that hold us

from us make no sound

absolutely nothing will

bring the past back

or her back.

.

I will call you

she said, I believed

on a hospital's bathroom floor

my life ended completely

maybe a bit before that

but I chose the moment

to cry over

as I chose nothing else.

.

And if I were to bring back time

to a moment

I would never go anywhere

just her past

change it, save her and disappear

but now all I'm left with are tears.

.

Not e'en a heart to cherish

and all around me are trees

a forest of unmoving creatures

and it's always night time

and I always die a bit before sunrise

and they always huff in return.

.

Then at last the sun sighs

and off my feet the clouds sweep me

as lighting shocks me back to life

when I fall back the trees burn me.
