You buried it so deep
So safe in hidden sleep
But like a tell-tale corpse
Rises to the surface
Over-ripe & bloated
In naked time-lapsed truth
Thought it was lost forever
Remember this
How long has it been
Or have you forgotten
When you first forgot?
Now resurrection the phoenix
Aflame with pride & conceit
Remembers this
Wind blown trees outside
Applauding like the ocean
To the cacophony inside
The waves come rushing in
A crashing whispering
Drowning they drink me
Ah not forgotten
This is not forgotten
Remember this
