Can’t Escape

Why can’t I find the strength
To run or to escape
To try and find a way
To forget my worst mistake?

Every corner …. everywhere 
Every move that I make
Every notion or concern
Every single step I take.

Overwhelming …. all consuming 
Why can’t you let me be?
I never have a moment’s peace
From this nagging memory.

Possession or obsession 
The memories persist
I need someone to break this spell
I need an exorcist.

All day long …. it never stops
Over and over again
I see your face …. I hear your voice
This madness has to end.

I’m running from the devil
I need to be set free
Free from this dark and evil spell
That you have cast on me.
