Tormenting Memories

Get out of my head!
Why won’t you get out of my head?

Insufferable memories
Delusional hopes
Away with it all

Damn infernal itch
Poking and prodding in my brain
Please just let me be

What has happened has happened
What was once good and sweet
Now torments

Just let go
Please, I just want to let go.

Why do I keep coming back?
Why?
To the thoughts of summer walks and late-night talks

She’s gone
She’s not coming back
You’re gone
You’re not coming back
Leave
Please
Why won’t you just leave?

Buried in my head,
Surfacing up as I lay in bed
Surfacing up as I sit at my desk
Surfacing up as I watch the sunset

Stop
Please stop

I beg

Be gone
Be gone
Be gone
