Play Back

God (Inspired by)

I play back the images of my demise;

if only, I could stop the tape

and erase these thoughts from my mind.


They repeat their lies on loop-

reiterating all my innermost fears.  


When the truth comes on the screen,

it reminds me of what’s been

lost in translation,

what I couldn’t hear

through the static.


I am the star of this scene:

the love of the hero.
