You are a most cruel angel
Disguising yourself in early years
You left us hungry, desperate and pressed towards every discovery.
Our impatience shattered every innocence
And in our haste we destroyed that which we can never hope to know again
So we locked away our thoughts in an effort to avoid further consequence.
You bring your nostalgia in rainstorms
Terrible torrents of places best kept unremembered
I will not go gently into your greedy hands
For every moment in which you carry me backwards
Is another moment stolen.
