Scraps Of Experience

My story comes from scraps of experience remembered,
morsels of of a life held in the balance of strange uncertainty,
shape-shifting like a wraith seeking a new perspective
amongst the lingering darkness of an emotional unknown.

Morsels of a life held in the balance of strange uncertainty,
somehow not remembering the loneliness of forgotten language
amongst the lingering darkness of an emotional unknown,
that which lies in the hidden underneath of past lives.

Somehow not remembering the loneliness of forgotten language
eating away the inheritance of my connection to imagination,
that which lies in the hidden underneath of past lives,
the meeting of my unknown self along cobbled stones at night.

Eating away at the inheritance of my connection to imagination,
shape-shifting like a wraith seeking a new perspective,
that which lies in the hidden underneath of past lives,
My story comes from scraps of experience remembered.
