Thorns

Scratches begin again,

Scratching tinnitus, that hollowed out grind

And the waking nightmare is burning

She thought I had forgotten,

After years and years of happy smiles,

She thought I had forgotten,

The tears on the bridge,

While the sun drowned in the ocean

Pearls of globular blue fade into sand,

The spark has fizzled out

Even the splinters on the wood feel good,

Just to blur it out

This is where I cried,

And pretend I am somewhere else

They are creeping upon me again,

Like strangers begging for attention,

Those memories I had once buried

They linger,

Just linger,

Beneath all the happy smiles,

The bubbles amongst boiling water

Foil my mind into an enraged state

And this is the trauma,

The faces of horror,

Shanked by thorns
