The door to yesterday


The door to yesterday
Is shut somewhere deep in my heart
Its not truth that remains
But the lies I keep inside

It stands locked
Like a fortress
Weathering many waves stormed
At the edge of the sea of sorrow

What lies inside
Is regret running deep
Like a blind man’s eye
Dark and endless

Do I remain in the infinite
Remembering those empty days
Or Do I look ahead and smile
At the many almosts 

My hopes remain outside
Flying into the wind
Like the misty tides
Going right through me

But the light’s bright out there
Cuts like a knife
I’d rather be without that air
Breathing in the empty promise

For love that has remained untold
Is better than a vacant tomorrow
For its worse to wait for life to unfold
In joy, only to lock it away deep inside

For I’d rather be locked in
Than locked out
I’d rather drown deep
Behind the door of yesterday
