"If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; that is where they should be. Now put foundations under them."
Henry David Thoreau

"I fell in love the way you fall asleep; slowly, and then all at once."
John Green


Bask in the light
Of memory;
Watch
As we weep of joyous tears,
As we pose for your wedding,
As we erect castles into the air.

Various tales are visible
In each frame of time-
Watch us grow,
Watch us love,
Watch as we soar above
All else.

Childhood stories
Are turned to ashes
In the listener’s mind;
Our height’s inches
Turn to feet,
Oh,
How have we grown so weak,
When there we are,
Secure
In photograph’s embrace?

Flicker over
My collage of remembrance
Over there;
These hang from
The dresser’s frame,
Mirror reflecting life-

Our life.

Absorb the innocence
Of youth
Within blazing eyes,
Before yours
Sizzles
Too.


The author's comments:
This idea came to me as I was looking at pictures hanging on my dresser's mirror. I realized how much people change and how you can resurrect memories but never completely relive them. I hope you like it. :)

Thank you so much for your comment; this is a very old piece of mine, and it made my day to know that it can be reread, and therefore, relived :)
