The Beauty That Was

~^~ "Dreams to Unravel" and I close my eyes drifting in memories, Bottomless is my pain, an endless chasm, "Fathomless" and eternal; "Whispered Words" before death uttered quietly, never to forget, My lamentation and melancholy "O, the weeping" the terrible weeping. "Pages of Time" pages engraved forever in my mind, slowly turning, I stand at your grave with "Flowers Wilted" asking God why; "The voices of the Dead" are calling, whispering, seeking answers, Like it was yesterday "Remembering Still" all the beauty that was. "Picture Perfect" is each beautiful memory I hold dear in my heart, And each night you wait "Beyond Midnight" down that winding path. ______________________ August 20, 2013 Verse For the contest, Its All In The Titles, Adam Hapworth
