Did you know an Elephant never forgets a face
Once the creature catches a glimpse it can never forget
and your face is one that I can never forget.
It’s the horrible truth to have to live with
while you frolic in the fields continuing to pick daisies and shoving them in a book to dry up.
And that crooked smile of yours and those rodent eyes creep with me every night
and have punctured my soul the way a cobra strikes a foe
Every day I die a little more.
Pill after pill and your face still remains
Friends tell me to flip you off
But you have already done that to me
The family tells me to leave behind the past
But you made sure I was left behind
Everyday I tell myself this is the day
This is the day I will leave you behind
But you keep coming back like flood and drown me in those memories of despair
Can’t you see I’m trying to break free of this little cage
But I’m afraid the cat will get me and you will drag me back upstairs
And up there who knows what you will do to me.
There is no way around this horrible truth I have to live with
Elephants never forget and neither will I.
