I peered silently into the silence,
And stared at all the chaos and destruction ..
Folding my hands, I gazed at the ruins,
Fading with time, fragments of memories ...
But day after day, night after night,
Born again they are in the depths of my mind ..
Rearing their hoods, shadows in daylight,
Shaking them off but I'm stabbed from behind ...
Dark shades of a distant past ..
Dragging out pleas from the bottom of my heart ..
Buried beneath the duvet, I squirm and cry ..
Someday, maybe, my wings, I'll spread and fly ...
