When you know and you don't

We always knew
It would come to this
THIS
like a brand new end
to a fairytale
that never was

and with every new slash
and every bit of sticky
viscous red
you wish it was just a new day
with no yesterdays
that scream on forever and ever

cling on like the rotten stench
of puke
you promised you'd clean up
and leave but a whiff of
fresh paint
intoxicating
dark untrodden corridoors

and a sketchbook
white as snow
untouched
untroubled
unblemished

untrue

only for you

like the goldfish
lying strangled
without reason
without fear
always near

and shining
dead

carefully carelessly
DEAD

"Like a brand new end"
End...
end...
so, it did end...
does it ever really end??...
The sins of yesterday are visited upon today.
... only if you let them...

See if this helps.
