Torn (2009)

My memories burn my heart

As they flicker in my mind

Small snapshots of life I lived before

Haunt me all the time.

You left too young

Leaving my adolescent mind to threads

How could this happen?

Why are you dead?

Our family is torn

Some here, some there

The two sides barely speak

Strangers who used to care

You left me without a trace of direction

You said I’d be okay

But I’m feeling anything but that

On this cold October day.
