Eternal sunshine of the spotless mind

Some people sleep to force away the pain

Worries fade through the haze unfazed of yesterdays

Some people cry to release the rage that’s inside

Why hide behind masks of some shallow pit of pride

 

Who am I to judge what makes your heart crumble to the earth

Little pieces chipped away but no one turns a second thought

I know of troubled secrets shattering meaning to your worth

Secrets hidden so deep within only the soul will ever know

 

And when you wake up reality sinks back to the brain

The taste of sweet fantasy out of reach once again

To slumber is to drift on the bliss of happiness

To remember is to drain you on the brink of half insane

Haunted by the pain that wrecks havoc on what little that remains

 

An ode to the wonderful words of Alexander Pope.
