Maelstroms

Maelstroms

Several maelstroms are blowing tonight

from the place of true love I call the maelstrom of change and let it surround me

but the maelstrom of the past is still resisting, unwilling to let me be

the maelstrom of change attacks the maelstrom of the past

trying to pierce through to reach the wound

but as the maelstrom of change takes risks in its offensive

the maelstrom of the past counterattacks with its traitor haze and its sweet words of promises

and I’m left alone to deal with this maelstrom that knows too well my weaknesses
