Prisoner in my Memories


I need to blot you out, erase your memory

and cleanse the stain of your influence.

You whisper more sweetly than before

when I sit alone in the dark with headphones.

You are a shadow clinging to the notes

and riding the symphonies to remind me

of a time when my painting wasn’t black.

My mind is a maze created to keep you out

but I have only trapped you inside me,

You are more real in my imagination

that you ever were in real life and it kills me.

Release me from this prison I put you

and let me live my life free from misery.

Even as I beg you, I look in the mirror

and I remember that I was the one

who chose to become like this.

So forget me, and live free of my mind.
