bad memories

badmemories

Oh, memories of yesterday
How you play with me.
In my mind you stay
Refusing to let me be

I spent a night under the stars
Mesmerised by the glitter
Hoping to forget all the scars
That in my mind you do litter

Gazing at trees by day
Sitting by a lake
Watching birds at play
Forgetting all the ache

Not alone for a moment
Keeping ever distracted
Trying to avoid the torment
From being re-enacted

Oh, memories of yesterday
Why won’t you let me be?
With you I cannot stay
It’s time to set me free
