As the wind blows through the glass windows and the curtains silently whisper
The clock in my heart chimes three leaving the streets of my soul naked
I try to catch a fleeting memory while it slips away into an abyss of thoughts
It seeped into my core like the rain on the ground just before it faded.
With glassy eyes I search for myself in my conundrum of emotions
And the pounding rain brings back haunting memories of forgotten pasts
I spasmodically clench my fingers under the burden of unwritten roles
Wishing for some respite but only for a moment does it last.
Hugging the nightmares of yesterdays and basking in the dreams
Breathing in the unwritten destinies of today I inevitably cycle back in time
A hidden voice caresses my heart and I momentarily let go
My lips softly move in prayer as I beg for permanence in this transient life.
