Brianna N R Wine (9-29-1995 / USA)
Haunted by my Unwillingness to Forget
Frenzy awakes me in the night to the truth I have so long denied-
Denied in good conscience, trying to shelter myself.
A lot of moments didn't last forever, the glimmer was too shiny,
I missed the signs, missed the fleeting moments that seemed to last only too long.
Panic grips me and squeezes my air, choking and suffocating like the so long denied truth.
How could everything pass me by without one glance?
My life has grown dull with simplicity and lacks the luster of promises.
Because the truth is now plainly seen and I still shield myself and look the other way.
If only recollections could be erased.
