Memories in hiding

Can no longer speak to my past
Muted , In the presence of my youth
Drank the potion of clarity
My flesh responded
I kissed the lips of a sleeping beauty farewell
Vast memories became past lovers
As I took a deep breath of yesterday’s answers
I was shaped
Into the image of a new beginning
Embraced but doomed
Behind me, nothing
Ahead, open
Images still haunts my essence
With no ability to conversate
Cause I am muted in its pressence
I listen to the last deep breaths
From my memories
My hand calms it
Last comfort to its eyes
