No Man’s Land

One strand of memory
Clings to me,
I push it away,
“Let me go!”
But it won’t listen,
it doesn’t know,
The ways of this world,
that we humans follow.
And thus, I stomp it down,
and splash my tears
it must die its own death
and I light my fears.
They spread into it’s body,
aflame, it stares at me
I leave, it is time
The borders have been drawn and sealed.
I hold the barbed wire
between my fingers
and snatch at it, till I bleed.
Drop by drop my memories
drench in the rain.
Memories mellow down
they are about to die
It is time, to move on
from the No man’s Land.
