fading memories


the days of sunshine and rain
are now a memory, a dream distant
wish i could relive them again
and drown the sorrow this instant

why can’t the mirror see that far
but just a moment passed instead
and reassure gloom it won the war
reveling coldly in those eyes dead

all i’m left with are memories now
for my present is forever alone
but can the furure be hopeful somehow
or all my happiness is forever gone


Night Encore

So long I parched my throat
Against the goblet of grapes
Trampled for a cause better
Underneath wisdom lies youth
Rebellious wanting nothing
Dearly than reliving days with
Astonishing possibilities
Yearning for another night
