I won't forget

The place

The smell

The sound

Of silence

Nothing can make me

Forget.

The memory is

Tattooed

On my skull

I wish I could

Lay it down

Wash it away

Cast it out

But it won't go

The memory

Of that awful place

You couldn't smell it

But you could feel it

Death

Everywhere

All around

Like a blanket

Suffocating me and trapping

These memories

Inside of my mind

Funny how you forget things

You don't want to

But when you try

To get rid of an image

It's attached to your soul

And it wont let go

It will never

Go.
