Until the Memories Fade




Through my hands as silver
The dust of comet trails
The twinkling of starlight
That's grown forever pale

The incense dissipates
The scent once did pervade
My skin is cool to touch
Nothings meant to stay

The greenery around
Wilts beneath my eyes
Nature seems content
Reflecting my own guise

Food has lost its pleasure
Wine acts proud that she
Is comforting the broken
Is everything to me

Light loudly makes a scene
While all I want is shade
To hide here in the aftermath
Until the memories fade.
