Talks In The Red Room - Poem by B.. Alexander

You turn to me and speak of the ruin
That I some time ago inflicted hard on us
The conversation slips, a change of pace
And I'm angry, keen to forget
Mistakes I've made along the way
It triggers me to drag up your dirty past
For yet another time, yet another round

There can be no happy outcome
There can be no cheery ending
If we don't forgive each other now
If we don't try and move things on

We'll just go round and round and round
Circular forever
Talks in the red room
Just go round and round and round
They'll never end
Unless we can honestly forgive

You turn on me and ask what was her name
I know you know; we've said it all before
And I don't notice as I turn it round
Now you must answer what we know I know
what's buried's unearthed for yet another time
Dragged out and back under the microscope again

There will be no happy ending
There can be no peaceful sleep
If we don't resolve this thing correctly
If we don't put these issues to rest

We'll just go round and round and round
Looping endlessly forever
Talks in the red room
Just spinning round and round and round
They'll never stop
Unless we can honestly forgive
And honestly, compliantly forget
