I want to cover my ears, I want to hum, or sing LA LA LA
Over your words, your memories, your testimony.
I want to turn up Dylan,
So my mind doesn’t hear your
Thoughts, your recollections,
I want to scream, no.
I want to cry.
I want to die.
I want to unhear, unknow and unremember,
Those terrible nights, more than one, more than two,
Maybe even, more than three
When I could not scream, I could not talk, and I could never
I want to change the channel,
Block out the noise,
I want it all to stop,
Like it did last time, when I
Just pretended it never happened.
