still there

it all swirls, swirls
spiraling round and round
hypnotic

losing contact, no contact
I'm out, quite out
cold, almost

remember that day, what day?
when I, yes when we ...
forgot ... who?

wipe it out, clean out
quick, write it down, deep down ...
no, lost it ...

grandfather clock, tick-tock, tick-tock
time keeps on passing, it's passing,
smothering

all those memories, blissful memories
obscured by fog, thick fog
endless night

pocket watch swinging, still swinging
I'm sleepy, very sleepy
untie the

knot I'm bound by, bound
in loving oblivion, sweet oblivion
take me home

that summer, going, going
now it's gone, long gone
forgotten

like her smile, kind smile
those gray eyes, bright eyes
that dark night

it goes around, comes around
back to her, not her!
rememb'ring

what I try to forget, must forget
no matter how I try and try
she's still there

AC im glad you are back and with another beautifully expressed poem.
Memories - sometimes we would rather forget than remember, but the more we try to push them from our mind the more insistent they become.
