Ugly Memories


I've allowed my perception to be altered.
But it's not for lack of trying.
I've been really really trying.
And I pretend to sit here unbothered.
when its eating me alive.
slowly eating me alive.

Every time I tune out the notions.
Every time I try to be brave.
I pick up a heavy sword of emotions.
Succumb to the pressure.
and fall on the blade.
Do I continue? or Do i surrender?
whats the point?
I'll always remember.

I should be looking forward.
But i'm always looking back.
All these years have passed,
and this is where i'm at.
with these ugly memories.
they keep haunting me.
these ugly memories.
wont set me free
these ugly memories
that keep me from me.
