Just once more I say, but it will always come back
Just once more I say, when it haunts me in the black
Just once more I say, as I try to push back.
Just once more I plead, when I am caught unaware,
It comes unnoticed from its lair
Only then does the pain of loss engulf me,
Only then does the memory seep into my heart
There it is,
As stygian as the sky
on a starless night
The curse that awaits me for eternity.
Dawn breaks the night,
Shattering the dark with an explosion of light.
And I know,
Memory shall haunt me forevermore
