Haunting Memory


  • Death

    Haunting Memory

    In the endless abyss of night
    She wanders the shore
    Clenching a tattered journal ever so tight
    Searching for something that is no more
    Locals swear they hear her cries
    Echoing in from the crashing waves
    Lost and burdened from a lifetime of lies
    The memory of her death she saves
    Cursed to wander the beach
    Unaware of her destiny
    Something so far out of reach
    The last moment she could not see
    Unable to make out the face
    That brought upon her demise
    Her homicide now a cold case
    She remembers only the lullaby's
    Some say you can see her there
    Sometimes just her journal in the sands
    Wander down if you dare
    By the water where she stands
    If you are open to what you may see
    You may just catch a glimpse of her haunting memory....

    wow, more goose bumps. i like your style.you are dark but good. you make me think and ponder, is there life out there in the yonder, if my eyes could see beyond this mortal world if we all could tell what is to come. you have the vision to see what i have been longing to be.

    well done!

    If I feel physically as if the top of my head were taken off, I know that is poetry.

    Emily Dickinson (1830-1886) American poet.
