Can you make me forget?
I look to escape the day
Thoughts tease what could happen
Reality whispers what will never occur
Lines separate here and now
Fragile dreams dance upon breezes
My obsession clings to maybes
I ask again, can you make me forget?
Yesterday is a complex knot.
Things once held power crumple
Dreams lay upon the ground in pieces
Hopes nothing but ties that bind
Doubts flavor the air upon your breath
Wanting to be part wastes on the vine
I seek roads not to be traveled
Responses without form of measure
The moment golden in distant light
Things served negligence steeped with desire
Thrills within the hidden places of the heart
To bask in warmth of could be’s
The price of release far outweighs the cost
