Louder Than Bombs

I wish I had that power to change the past in so many ways
But the bombs stay which causes a ripple effect that contours my life
Each time, I try to repair the damage

The bombs begin to fall
Echoing through my soul and I am left in a desolate place once again
Fighting to stay
Whilst surrounded in pain
This maze never fades
I suppose that is life in a way

It is hard to keep the past at bay
I don’t understand
I will never understand
The terrible words that have become stuck to my body like acid rain which falls everyday Since you came back

I wish that I had an umbrella to protect me from the rain but it would burn through anyway
You continue to stay
I wish I could runaway
To keep you at bay
Your voice echoes louder than bombs
I didn’t think you would stay this long
My only hope is that one day

You are gone

I can hear the songs
After so long, I can hear through the bombs and…
Finally, I can go on.
