I Am Not Going Back
I am not going back
To you with some fleeting memories,
A few spoken words and distorted feelings
Showed up for a moment

Out of illusions, mistaken thoughts,
Like scattered flower petals for nothing.
Time, lost like never spent,
No silver lining through the darkness.

Illusion took over the intellect,
Paralyzing the reasoning mind,
Like a dream in daylight, nonlinear,
Uncovered, lost in the hope

Of springtime water,
In the hope of a songbird's song,

In a long-lost dream.
