just another sunset…


you didn’t think much when he said those 3 words
fact is you didn’t believe him at all
when it really became annoying after many years
the jack-in-the-box within your mind decided
to toss a grenade and run like hell
as you watched yourself being torn by shrapnel
never considered what you had done to that mirror
now there’s unexplained pieces of metal in your body
some phantom pain in your heart and soul
that never goes away, never can be explained
his anchor rope pitched over the side long ago
wrapped around the ankles of your conscience
twilight’s last gleaming is just another sunset…
