Bad Memories

Poem By Donna Nimmo

Why do i have to live in pain from years ago and recent
I try to shut out all the pain and to you be so decent
I bury it all and shut it out and it always will erupt
Trying to be always loving and forget so I won't be abrupt
I'm held captive in my mind, the pictures dance in my head
I can't forget the past, my mind busy when I go to bed
My emotions take me where I don't want to be any more
I'm a prisoner to bad memories, where I can't even the score
I start to sink into a deep black hole, where there is no light
I have to pull myself up again, not ready to give up the fight
I am a survivor now, I escaped the pain and sorrow
I'm over it now but it will be there when I wake up tomorrow
I asked god, please let me forget and make it go away
But the memories are there though buried, they plan to stay!
