two men enter

from by phantoms



my dear son I am so proud of you
do you really think I am that naïve?
misunderstanding all that I see?

you left these people with
emotional lacerations and those scars
those scars in my cranium
took years till they stopped hurting

from time to time I think they haven't ever really stopped
and often I wondered if I ever wanted them to

so now you tell me
I am your last piece of mirth
that is left in your withered life
though you never gave a shit about us anyway
while you did not care I had three decades
to reconsider long repressed memories
to reconsider them, to reconsider them

sleepless nights I had to survive
building up walls in my foggy mind
running mazes
strive for knowing if it was because of me

an endless road leading to a sheer
a bottomless fall - when will I crash?

and though I don't feel like I have the strength to
I still know what I have to do
to find at least my peace of mind
I swear one day we will meet
in this abandoned dusty place
in the back of my head
where two men will enter
and only one will leave
