In the past… 

Awake and yet
in truth am I
I wonder
I find myself
walking
the footsteps walked before
and
again
here am I
the venue
the same yet changed
or in the change
me or here
and here I walk
footsteps out of time
teardrops laughter
anger and pain
here I walk
once again
and in the walking
reliving
re-feeling
asleep and awake
nowhere to flee.
