Lingering Dream

I’ve seen too much
Things eyes shouldn’t see
Let alone gaze upon
Too late to erase memories
That never can be undone

No looking back
Hoping it was a mirage
An illusion
That will fade
And disappear

Now every other thing I see
Reminds me of it
That lingering dream
That I can ever be separate
From all else
