Buried by the Burden


779af58291e5ce988fcded06c34a8866-running-away-body-partsI am buried by the burden

Crushed by the weight of my past

Haunted by endless memories

Softly caressed by all the beautiful ones

Then assaulted by a wave of sharp agony

That carries the reality

Of the fact that those times are gone

Those people are lost

They are dust under my bare feet

Nothing more

(This piece was written to ‘Buried by the Burden’ by Pacific Heights feat. Louis Baker)

This poem was inspired by the word prompt ‘BURY‘ at The Daily Prompt
