Sedation

I walked out of sedation
the dark cleared from my eyes
Taking consideration
of the demons in my mind

I walled off information
and heart and soul and life
Squandered and replaced them
with dirt and guilt and lies

My urge a dim-lit basement
My need a clever guise
My enemy retraces
the scars and wounds and lines

I walked out of sedation
toward the new day light
Taking consideration
of the demons in the night

Picture

I was rummaging through things
and found a picture of us.
I can’t remember how it felt to be loved,
I can’t remember your touch.

You are running through my dreams
and blurring all of my thoughts.
I can’t find the words; I can’t tell you to stop,
I can’t remember at all.
