I remember

I remember...

Things I've done wrong
Choices I shouldn't have taken
Time being wasted
Turning my face to fear
Giving myself to pleasure
Erasing my mind for a while
Not looking at myself in the mirror
Keeping my hands busy and my mouth shout

I remember...
Facing reality after the day was gone
Calling your name night after night
Whispering to an empty space
Pretending there was nothing I could do
Falling apart

I remember...
Saying how fine I was
Thinking I was moving forward
Drawing your face each day
Making myself believe I was weak
Looking for excuses
Being lonely

Tonight I remember how powerless I felt
and all the time I wasted
and all the time it took for me to get here
