And so here I am

Watching as the plains of time time roll swiftly by

Thinking of the best of times

The ones I'd call the better days

I'll stare out into the ocean sky

As it stares back to me

Wondering, remembering

Knowing that in the past, that person had been me

Those times I could miss so sorely

I wish sometimes could be left behind

But they are forever there, stuck within me

Because they've indubitably created this person who is me

Diamond Glass

Are those dear joys

Gazing through them, I can see

Leading through the string of events, of how I became the present 'me'

A man stripped of his honor

His dignity

Left hollow inside

A burned out muse; a simple useless muse

Like a man lost out in sea

In my own air, I'm drowning

In my own bed of flames

My rekindling passions

In through the Crystal Glass Memories,

I feel those chains

Forever reining myself away

Far away from my own dangerous desires

The author's comments:
I kinda skipped around in this one, but all the stanzas are connected. Just read in between the lines. This one is basically all of the old memories that a person can feel, and the burning desire someone can have to go back to how things used to be, all the while knowing that they can't and because of it, they want to be rid of the memories, but also cannot as without those memories, they could not have become who they are in the present.
