On the nights the low tide hits shore I remember.

I remember who I'm now and who i was ounce upon a time.

I remember everything...

for someone with bad memory.

I remember everything on this night when the low tide hits shore.

A gentle breeze whistles past my ear and whispers...

"Don't forget'".

I close my eyes and squeeze them shut trying to do anything but remember.

I don't want to go back to who i was but it's all so tempting..

to hold on to that voice.

When the night gets dark and the gentle breeze whistles i instantly remember everything.

The slam of the last door.

The sound of despair.

The sound of lost hope.

The last breath of innocence.

I try not to remember.

But the babe in the corner all drenched in sweat and tears looking at me with those eyes...

those eyes...

I try not to remember.

I shut my eyes close.

I try to shut the world out.

Pull the cover over my head.

Slow steady breath.

A silent whimper.

I brace myself for a long night.

I try not to remember but I'm slowly drifting...

into my past?

Seeing everything I'd hope to have left behind.

On the nights the low tide hits shore...

I remember...

I remember...everything.
