but still it stirs

the light in here is dim
this is not a good place for me to be
the dust has settled long ago
over all the memories that used to be
and i can’t think of stirring it all up again
but stir it does
all on its own
and i go along for the ride
this is a dark place where i don’t want to feel at home
filled with the revelations
the cries
the recriminations
but still it stirs and calls me back
to find this ugliness i thought was gone
is really still there
i don’t want to care
i just want to sit and stare
at the layers of dust covering the memories
wanting them to stay covered and quiet
but instead they squirm
underneath all this phony calm

but still it stirs
