The mists of memory, enshroud-
The tangled corridors-
Of the heart, and the mind,
That you once claimed were yours.
A sullen stream of tears run down-
Dank, depressing air....
Where never smile or laugh is found
A labyrinth of despair.
Ah, the light which once was here...
The laughter, bright and gay...
Alas, too soon they disappeared
And darkness came to stay.
The dreams which wafted like a scent
Of rose or daffodils-
On bitter gales away they went...
In vain I hunt them still...
Ah, wretch, methinks thy reasonís flown-
Perhaps indeed Ďtis true...
Like you, I know not where itís gone,
I miss the both of you.

You know...I'm wondering if this was written "to" someone else or "to" the writer himself? (I mean, as in "perspective"...) Either way, it works, and so effectively, Gunslinger. I like this different bend. (nearly as much as your traditional stuff!)
