New Tape





The past
You buried
Clawing its way back
It will
Carving Future
And you’ll be trapped
In the Here and Now
Helpless

Ominous Silence
Lurking beneath the surface
Howls
You are screaming
They’re squeezing
The life out of you

The seconds as they path
And between them intervals
Years
You feel
Click ‘fast forward’
To more benign times
Or maybe “Rewind”
Then erase
And begin a new tape

I just wish "erasing" was an option, cause it do nothing but pursuing and haunting!
