A taste of nostalgia

There’s nothing like thinking back
on February nights
when we rocked the whole world away.
There’s nothing like thinking back
on February nights,
but they’re forever gone away.

There’s nothing like the sweet smell
of dust and dying dreams,
when we believed we were the best.
There’s nothing like memories
of dusty dreams now dead
to make this lonely soul confess.

There’s nothing like nostalgia
to cause the heart to burn
and ache and long for days of old.
There’s nothing like nostalgia
to cause the mind to learn:
daydreams simply wear on the soul.

Dreaming of a dreary past
will cause the soul to hurt.
Can’t nostalgia just go away?

Blind

My hands are not strong enough
to hold you up forever.
My mind aches with the pinch
of nostalgia coming back.
My eyes roll with every sigh
you breathe after I speak.
My world cannot maintain
the endless rejection.
My hands are holding on
but will soon let go.
My life is hanging in the balance
but you don’t seem to notice.

You don’t seem to notice
at all.

Time

Life falls over,
dusk draws closer,
sun drains to the sea.

Now nostalgia
has more power,
chokehold over me.

Time will always win.
Time will always be
the empty part of me,
the last breath of defeat.

Photographs were
memories, now
flaming paper dreams.

Tears won’t save me,
life escapes me,
sun drains to the sea.

Time will always win.
Time will conquer me
because time exhales
the last breath of defeat.
