I walk, and a memory emerges,
Sudden and uninvited.
Overwhelming, it controls me.
I bite my tongue, I curse it.
Precious tears touch my cheeks,
What pain; it fills inside me.
Bursting into external action.
What hope, what life,
do I see before me?
Barely I resist, but now I'm only failing.
I see it; time. Ticking ever closer.
Desperately I exist, but now I'm only fading.
