Never Last

He stood alone arms raised high Felt as if he could touch the sky Looked around and saw his past Nothing there can ever last Moving smoothly like a ghost Looking once, twice at most Felt the wind go thru his bones Everybody faceless drones In the valley between the trees Head down he's on his knees Eyes wide open head thrown back Hard to see in such pitch black Memories standing in the rain Faces twisted full of pain Reaching out to touch the night Memories flutter taking flight Pushed beyond the breaking point His wish was never to disappoint The truth is always darker still Hands tied up no time to kill Wishes died and murdered hope Swinging twisting at end of rope Thoughts impaled time harassed Memories outline never lasts

Thanks, SKAT. It was one of those that just sort of writes itself. It wasn't until after I was done that I realized what it was about. Memory loss. Crazy huh.
