beyond the shroud

fortified memories concealed by stone hidden away from prying eyes treading lightly on cold numbing floors tactile sense my only friend here beyond the shroud stumbling and crawling all the way old wounds never healing unmistakable sound of faint breathing like ancient whispers echoing on here beyond the shroud darkness blanketing moistened skin breathing humid air is like drowning eyes burning from stinging sweat mixing with tears from hopelessness here beyond the shroud lost forever is this cherished treasure having forgotten its entombed location lack of sustenance leaves my body quivering fearful of dying all alone here beyond the shroud fearful of dying all alone here beyond the shroud ----- Having recently found aforementioned cherished treasure, I think I'm going to be OK now. Thanks M! -----
