fleeting presence appearing in ones mind
here for a moment, gone for the next
maybe they are picturesque moments of ones life?
or hellish disgust of the daily humanity.
memories that bring forth horror and hurt
yet some vanquish to bring better ones forward
smile as laughter echo through your mind
but frown when you hear the screams of pain
of smiles and laughter, of fun and games
of tears and screams, of suffering and torture
some would be forever gone
but others, engraved forever inside the depth of the mind.
i have a memory i would forever remember
of long ago scares and despair
scars that will linger forever
not on the skin but leaving me buried forever
of things i wish i never experienced
of things i hoped were just nightmares
but even as i open my eyes, never disappear
always something there to remind me
but yet again, i have another
of the laughter and happiness that were true
of smiles and fun that childish innocence bring forth
living through life, hoping to see another day
remembering the memories...
the wonders of the human mind
some i hope to forget forever
some i want to treasure till the end
or a gift?
