amnesia is a creature
who resides in a bog
deep down in the mud
of lost memories
her face swollen with tears
that i cannot cry
for ten years of my life
that i cannot recall
ten years that she took
and swallowed up whole
not even a ghost
did she leave me behind
did i ride in a school bus
did i have any friends
did i live with my parents
in a house somewhere
it’s nothing but blank
there’s nothing to hold
no way to know
i was innocent once
it aches my soul cold
to stand there at night
at the edge of the bog
where my childhood died
