Treasure Island

Gilbert Tapales

(Jan.24,1985 / Manila, Philippines)

but still memories cling


in this dark room i sit and stay
only the howling wind haunts me like a prey
in this room full of memories, memories that flashback
memories of yesterday i don't want to go back

i keep my self shut, i keep my self shut
for that is the only protection that i ever had
for this sorrow always cling, for this sorrow always cling
like a song in the funeral that i don't want to sing

darkness crawled by and succumb in my bed
even when i sleep they haunting me to death
for there is no tomorrow that i am in peace
for memories remain of your last kiss

eventhough in the end your not coming back
in my heart left a void still holding back
bit by bit the memories of you i will forget
bit by bit i will try, bit by bit i will forget
but still memories cling, but still memories cling

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
