Remember Me....(Bittersweet)

Written by: Bob shank

I am your oppressor
the stick upon your open wounds
the salt within the gaping flesh
a chaotic storm upon your soul

I am the one who swore
you'd never amount to anything
the rope that held you in place
a dagger plunged within your heart

I am the ultimate tranquilizer
that keeps you in a stupor
as a world of happiness flies by
the thorazine laced with blues

I am your past, present and future
the coffin that nestles pleasant dreams
and turns them to nightmares
an abyss of all your childhood fantasies

Remember me
I am Love
that taste of honey
you'll never know............
