Can You Tell Me

Can you tell me

Where is the door

To the place

Where memories can be erased?

Is it somewhere in the

Back of my mind

Or in the nick of time?

 

***

 

How do I remove these lies

That stick like butter to my ribs?

Calling dibs on sanity,

Questioning humanity,

Trying to understand

What God has planned

In these loops of insanity.

 

***

 

When I close my eyes

I realize

That Love was just another

Four letter word

You said like Shit.

But that’s not it.

Time reveals your clever tricks.

 

***

 

How do I clean up these

Piles of deception

Turned into misconceptions?

Fragments of truth

Abandoned without proof,

Just another exploitation

In the name of flirtation.

 

***

 

Can you tell me

Where is the door

To the place

Where memories can be erased?

Is it somewhere in the

Back of my mind

Or in the nick of time?

Love is a Time Machine

20190326_153117

 

I’m trying to find the light at the end of this tunnel in my mind,

But the darkness is so bright it keeps me paralyzed.

It keeps me in a room where I’ve misplaced the key

And I’m stuck here forever

Until I make another dream.

They say love is blind,

They say love takes time,

Like a time machine for you and me

Bringing us back to where we used to be

Before our hearts got entwined.

This is time traveling,

Forcing the unraveling of the things we have seen,

Ripping at the seams of what we thought was the truth,

But how does the proof vanish into thin air

Like a magic show turned into a dare?

Those universes in our eyes,

They used to mystify

But now they just remind us of the places we’ve been,

The spaces between you and me

That are lost in the depths of our dreaming of dreams.

And so it seems,

Broken hearts fuel the time machines’ speed,

And I sit alone

Searching for air to breathe.

—Me
