The Dream Of Returning

I had wanted to forget
to go back on foot
the road at noon
taking me home
where the light blazes
the shade is thick
and the dog barks.

I wanted to forget
and almost shouted aloud,
but memories keep unreeling
forcing me into silence
my eyes shut
dragging my heavy feet
perplexed and lost.
