Nostalgia’s Blue Hands


Streams of memories

My mother used to read me stories

September 3rd, emotions whistling echoes

I used to wear yellow coats

Nostalgia's blue hands on my throat,

Birthdays with brothers

Celebrating Christmases, or maybe Easters

Unawareness and misunderstanding was a previous page

I believe I am now reaching a stage

Nostalgia's looking glass, upon my eyes

6 years old, back gardens were big

When it was actually just a London gig

I remember doing cartwheels at the park

I remember when nothing was gloomy or dark

When everything was a 20 minute sitcom,

But where's the over head laughter gone?

Blue hands around my neck,

Blue hands tighter and tighter

The tighter it gets to more I remember

The tighter it gets the more I want to forget
