Lessons Forgotten

Old songs play
Over again
Like scratched records
Stuck

Melodies
Sweet perhaps
Lost now
Second time around

Blame
A skipping song
Bittersweet
Nothing learned

Past lessons
Ignored
Like nightmares
Reoccurring.

Books
Carelessly tossed
Across the bed
Unopened, useless

Lessons unlearned
Presented again
Mastery just
An illusion.
