Favorite Quote:
"Yet if hope has flown away, In a night or in a day, In a vision or in none, Is it therefore the less gone? All we see or seem, Is but a dream within a dream. . ." ~Edgar Allan Poe.

We wear the skins
Of those long gone
Keeping the look
Alive and still

We see with dead eyes
Silently dark and blank
Where quiet light flows
Through hushed corridors.

Memories long away faded
After their holder
Can keep them
No more

Feuding with death
Fighting cold fists
Too hard to stay ourselves
Forever and later after

We wear the grins
Of the smiling dead
We of the void
We who have been forgotten

Were do memories go when we foget them?
