Whispers


Shadows from the past
Is what holds me back
I tried to leave it behind
Tried to neglect it
For it creeps me out
But I can't

The past I have shaped
Mistakes, misdeeds
I wish I could go back
To clean up the mess
To be at peace, to move forward
But I can't

I have heard its whispers
Slowly poisoning my head
Stop! I screamed
My heart is in pieces
Tried to bring it back together
But I can't

Conforten zona- where it left me devastated
Constrained, diseased
It now tries to kill my aspirations,
My tomorrow
I would have let it
But I won't

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
