Impossible Task

You cannot return to the past

no matter how hard you try,

the memories which remain

only make you want to cry.

The faces of the departed

are forever in your mind

and you know replacements

you will never find.

Telling yourself the nights

will get better never works

for there in the darkness

all your memories lurk.

Looking ahead to the future

is an impossible task

while here in the present you hide

yourself away behind a mask

to hide the feelings

you do not want to show

to people you wish

you did not even know.
