Fire's Fanned Out (Oct 11th,2003) - Poem by Nicholas McDonough
You have chosen to not see
You've locked it all away
and pretended not to hear
can't understand how it is misread anyway
Do you remember who you are...
who you were... what will come of this world?
Do you tell yourself
I'm just another with my heart so cold?
I now question you
Do you still know yourself well?
No matter what you think I do
know me. Do you know me or even you?
Once again, do tell.
I knew you once sought
but not why your words seem earthbound a lot
Do you know who you spoke to
or is it you just think you do?
You mentioned your heart
yet now it seems you'd rather throw
everything that you know
away and fade into the crowd for a new start
Seems you through yourself away
trying to forget anyway
Blocking out everything
seems so god damn mean
What happened to knowing who stood where?
What happened to the one that used to care?
Now where does your heart lie,
please set this straight
Do you remember why
things happened as they did
and why it was too late?
I think it is you
who should instead take a step forward
and ponder this poem I put on the board
