Done for A Prompt Each Day, a daily dose of inspiration. Today the prompt is the quote below:



today my memory failed me

searching the abyss of despair

for that gloom hugging me like a second skin

today my memory failed me

as I listened to that cacophony of words,

searching for the deep resonance

that used to caress me to sleep.

I almost grasped it,

but then it slipped through my gaping fingers,

a snarl slapped me instead.

today my memory failed me,

gliding through the haze of lies based on aspects of truths,

the shaky facade of carefully coated words slipping

to reveal the bare bones of

semantics in its degraded form.

today my memory failed me,

delving deep into yester-years

to desperately seek a day

when the moon stood still

on a fast wilting bed of roses

the thorns drawing blood

from you and I

today my memory played tricks on me you know.

my memory failed me.

my  memory refused to

regurgitate the left-over of a passion long gone cold

passion that now sits in my belly

waiting to pass out in a cremation of rebirth
