the past is a tattooed painter

drifting through heart necklaces and

photobooth images

smoking senior service

conjuring imaginary tied

to demons channeling memories

If you struggle with those voices

as a sailor navigating through

Sea of roses

as a circus performer in a parade

of mystical animals

It doesn't matter

I have lost that state of mind

that induces the shifting of sleep

we are in the embrace of a violent storm

that tears at the ground we stand

unmasking scars that should not be concealed

who harbours the beast

and where can we hide

we orphans of the storm

I had completely forgotten

how it felt to be hated

I do not wish to climb that mountain

too many have set out on that road

I will leave that conquering to you

I do not wish to sing that song

there are too many voices already drowning the music

others can hide their anger in the words

I will not lay flowers on the ground

amongst the red river of pain

a few tears cannot wash those stains away

I will not do these acts for it is not over

the wound is still open

our hearts are still broken

we should be angry all the time

but we are only tired and afraid

I will gather the pieces

and leave them at your table

you can deal with the shame

I do not wish to climb that mountain
