Fading Memories

There are ripples moving along the way Making mini waves flowing on the sea They go down and away from where I sway Brilliant, the moon shows that I am empty Piercing more wavelets as it goes along Until there’s only chaos which leaves me I don’t see the ripples here to prolong Nothing at all but dead space exists there Not a sound carries across the large throng Space is vast holding true to what I dare As I get older the wavelets don’t form Causing this space to go and find despair I can’t think straight now, I’m fogged up inside There’s not a breeze, it is calm here besides
