Mercury Man

On the road to cessation,
I discovered tiny tears,
The kind most accompanied
By legions of saviors
(albeit rented for just a few hours)

Undeterred, my race resumed;
Candles lighting my path
Through the forest, avoiding
Sparks that often ignite lies,
A vain attempt to retrace tracks
Of my runaway memory, drowning
Me in delusions of laughter, gripping
Tightly to descending cries of lost
Hearbeats, the sound green makes,
Each tear a field of poppies, as far as
My eyes can see; behold
Jupiter ascending, under the watchful
Eyes of Pisces,

    "my runaway memory, drowning Me in delusions of laughter, gripping Tightly to descending cries of lost heartbeats"..Sounds sad like a love that is lost..I like the last two lines as well Whispering Eternity. ..I haven't heard from you in a long time..I hope all is well on the home front..Sara
