Hillsborough: Twenty Years to Yesterday

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 No-one can express the sorrow
of those dark days
When tomorrow is replaced
by a loop replay of horror
The future taken away
Your life a whispered name
All the plans you had
Cause grief lozenges in my throat
I remember and I choke
with tears; no sign of drought
A snatch of sound, a fleeting thought
as past and present mix
Shattered minds play well worn tricks
Maybes, ifs, and worst, by nows…
by now…you would have been married
by now I should be moving on
by now…you would have had kids
by now I should have learned to deal with this
… but those images
in stark contrast
bold and underlined
images unfaded by time
surreal
but so real
no more tomorrows
just yesterdays horrors

For all those who have lost someone and in remembrance of Hillsborough.
