Back in Time

Back in Time

I wanted to believe
that I could travel
back to time past
To escape the pain
and the memories
How long could it last?
Itching to be gone
into thin air
Touch the stone
In theory be gone
Without a care
Tired of your criticism
Weary now
of the humorless pokes
Drained of energy
I stagger 
My back on the ropes
Today is the day
I find myself here
In front of the stone
Concentrating hard
I say goodbye to you and
Back in time I am thrown
