I flinch as I feel your soul flicker.
Traces of the future,
Emblems of the past.
Your wrinkles form a deep chasm between us.

I just wanted to talk about how different it is between young people and old people.Even when you're trying to get along and understand each other, there's a fundamental "chasm" between us that is difficult to overcome.

this was short, yet powerful!! from what I interpreted, this is about generation gap..? how the older person has only 'traces' of future but 'emblems' of past.. really nice :) what's the actual meaning that you intended to convey??
