Every Need In Me - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

I've got to move...
From memories,
Haunting...
Every need in me!
I've got to move.

I've got to move...
From shadows,
And dark places.

I've got to move...
From despairing melodies,
That keep me in such solitude...
And,
Deep dark gloomy moods!
I've got to move.

I've got to move...
To open all closed windows.
And,
I've got to move...
More than two steps away from doors.

Closed within I've been.
And I've got to...
Leave behind memories,
Haunting...
Every need in me!

I've got to move.
I've got to move...
From memories,
Haunting...
Every need in me!

I've got to move.
I've got to move...
From memories,
Haunting...
Every need in me!

I've got to move.
I've got to move...
From memories,
Haunting...
Every need in me.

I've got to move.
I've got to move.
I've got to move...
From memories,
Haunting...
Every need in me.
