What is Behind Me?

I cannot recall past loves

No flashbacks, no memories.

I cannot draw a face

Nor remember a place

As if they never existed

I cannot recall past lovers

Nor the attachment I had

I did try

But a wall followed me

Obstructing my vision

Once I stopped

That wall kept going

Nudging me forwards

Once I walked backwards

The wall jumped sides

Blocking me

Nothing there, I saw

The past is always behind!

Once I jumped high

And stole a peek

Nothing there

The wall crumbled

Dust everywhere

I cannot recall a past lover

I cannot see my own past
