Without looking back.
The last sandbag of
Memory is gone.

With a lash of her tongue
Her words slashed me
And I came undone

Until the world becomes quiet and still
Then I shall write the story
Of my life.

In search of a love greater than most would know,
But I still hold out
For you,
The one that holds the dagger
