"Erosion" by E
Awakening, memory floats around me
A whispering wind pushing through the trees
Dissolving in the morning light.
It lingers on my lips
The dream so distant and unreal now
Different than what it was in sleep.
I thought the yearning was gone
Forgotten desires that tormented my soul
But in the shadows of my heart you remained.
Banished from my thoughts
When I'm not even looking anymore.
Tendrils of memory
Stroke the stone of my heart
Perpetual in their conquest,
Disguised as a dream
It lies dormant
waiting for sleep to come again.
Maybe bittersweet memory of me
Will forever haunt you
Behind closed eyes,
Like yours do mine
Seeing without sight.
