I Don’t Want To See

I wish I could take a picture of the past

Snap it out of focus and blurred

The memories are too painful

I want to find the silver lining

Of the dark clouds that I had

Only one thing I can hope for

That time will blur the things I recall

And eventually the pain will fade


Written for Fandango’s One Word Challenge (FOWC) – blur

Dreams Blur Into Nightmares

My dreams begin to blur

With every drink you take

I have been here before

And it was ugly then

I don’t want to relieve that nightmare

I don’t want to see someone else

Waste away to nothing

Ravaged from the disease

I don’t want to live my nights in fear

Or what might be with every new bottle

I know you are not him

I know this could be different

But to me it is terrifyingly familiar
