Flash Backing - Poem by Aaron Restua

Hopes are now terminated;
Dreams are now captured by myths,
And yet while I am at peace at the other side,
Why should it be now?
Why now when everything seems to be set once more?
If now where is never?
If this, why be gone?
Let me soar my life away from you!
Let the pains be gone!
Let me alone now!
Or else I'll keep coming back,
Coming back through self-driven anxieties.
Let me be free! Just flee!
I don't know where...
But go somewhere else.
If I'd stay here, I'll stay...
