memories only live

Sad but marvelous
memories remain immortal
we love
we lust
all else we do
we must
but memories
only last

all else does rust

Style / type: 
Free verse
Review Request (Intensity): 
I want the raw truth, feel free to knock me on my back
Editing stage: 


And we become prisoners of our memories - especially the bad unresolved ones. We live and relive them as though nothing has changed. This piece touhed something very deep within.

Cheers ... Leonard

This is one of your best works that I have read in a while! Short and sweet! No convoluted meanings and perfectly understandable. Marvelous! ~ Gee
