NOSTALGIA We all have afflictions to trace, dust and pathways and blue devils to embrace Each marked memory is so hard And so arduous to face I listen, and I know the grudge you drape for that old place I see the blood you bleed for then, for that chapter in your age A past, a weakness, a cage Damned lonely, damned sullen, and mighty Your emotions run so freely, so seemly, yet so tangled With stricken words through sour glass you so gravely paint your youth Each memory sold to sorrow Each tale a course of clay A girl in the shadows, curled up in waiting Fighting through the thick time to carve your strength today Your sadness, your lone heart, your frigid days before me Those thoughts they are depressive Like stalking sights of pain Yet they are your source of power They are your drink of rain You hark those doleful days to magnify your sight To reach through what is done To know what sadness is To live, To be And to love who you've become
