the world within me
Author: Ella

Chapter 59
take away those memories

take away the memory
of me sitting all alone
whiling all the time i had
and turning into stone

take away the memory
that saddens every soul
when i can speak no more
and the future shall unfold

take away the memory
where i fall into the backdrop
and no one comes around
to pull me to the top

take away the memory
where tomorrow never ends
and let me find a friendship
from my dozen friends

take away the memory
where repetition slows me down
and how i learn to memorise
each painfully silent sound

take away the memory
that held me back from flying
and take me to the skies
where i might learn soaring

take away the memory
where no one cares about me
where people just walk pass
as i they cannot see

take away the memory
where once i was a child
but fearful thoughts gripped my heart
and nightmares killed my smile

take away the memory
where always i would shy away
and walk into a broken corner
spend each and every day

take away the memory
where i stood so afraid
of silence once a melody
when anger a wrath made

take away the memory
that holds me there so tight
but bringing me each moment
a dream i wish each night

take away the memory
of her smile so very bright
for i don't want to fall too deep
and live forever in fright

take away the memory
where i sat on the floor
terrified of people
who always slammed the door

take away the memory
where i stood quite nearby
waiting for the moment
that i may curl up and die

take away the memory
where they brought me a smile
for sadness is i recall
and forgotten all this while

take away the memory
of ignorance i felt
the kind of kindness i cried for
and the heart that wouldn't melt

take away the memory
i cannot stand anymore
the times which brought me joy
would never be a bore

take away the memory
because all i remember is pain
each time i fell down
i struggled to stand up again

take away the memory
for i see only the storm
the light rain was never real
a mere virtual form

take away the memory
for i cannot recall
the time i smiled and meant it
screaming across the hall

take away the memory
of her leaving me behind
because someday i'd leave them too
and new memories would i find

take away the memory
i cannot remember anymore
the time i used to cherish
was a relic of before

take away the memory
the ancient thoughts come by
for if sorrow imprints my heart
i'd rather memories just die

take away the memory
where everyone walked past
where i didn't really matter
and time was just too fast

take away the memory
the memory of this little girl
who only could remember crying
for the cruelty of this world
