Close Your Eyes

Close your eyes,
let the memories begin.
Play it back,
rewind.
Stop.

Can you feel the pain,
as it re-enters your skin?
The hidden lies
buried deep within.

Every tear you cry
will hold no sorrow.
Every wish upon a shining star,
simply tossed away.

Close your eyes ,
let the sea of memories flood,
Taking over,
all you know.
