Come Again


Past has come again, like night haunts the day

“Turn”, I tell it, “please turn away”

Those days were never meant to stay


I was a prisoner, in a system that wrote

Words upon the sky

A slave, I never questioned why


But then came the night sky…

And oh… how he twinkled so bright

Like diamonds sprinkled into

My corner of hell

And so for him… a thousand demons I did fell…


But rise, and rise again, they come like

The jinn, with whispered dreams of things so sweet

And to my starving eyes they do look the treat

But death lies in their wake

And their thirst… will never slake

Until finally I break

An empty coffin

And an endless heartbreak
