shadows of the past

shadows of the past
are whispering in my ears
about the beautiful moments we had

my heart is weeping
because they are gone

back then, my smile was important
and you tried to conjure it
especially in hard times

what changed?
I am drowning
and you rather look away?

you think you are running
but you are standing still
you cannot outrun your burdens
I have to take them!
and you don't even want to see it!

how long can I take this?
living just from the shadows of the past…
