    The Wreckage of a Great Day...

    No more is the common refrain
    Upon this relief of conviction
    And the attempt of bravery
    Commences

    No more is the common refrain
    Or Never Again
    The bold proclamation

    Bold words....
    Self improvement...

    The lies we tell
    To our loved ones
    And upon ourselves

    And thus we bring the wreckage
    Upon ourselves.

    Loitering upon our past
    Poisoning our recollections

    Never had I felt a good from then
    As I feel the good from now

    Without this poisoned nectar.

    But today was a good day.

    An experience never felt before
    And never felt in the past

    There is only one way to feel this experience
    Again today

    With the poisoned nectar from my past.

    And now the day is gone
    The memories of today have past

    I reach for the poisoned nectar
    For the yesterdays that's lost.

    It think I got it. It took me a while to puzzle through. Nice.
