Memories upending over my soul
Burn like acid as they touch the floor
Blinking away like camera flashes 
They capture my heart’s core

Held prisoner in a wave of sadness
As moments flow and caress
The shore of eternity 
Only to fade and flee

Vanishing into an abyss
Returning to taunt with a glimpse
They grasp emotions in a blink of an eye
And strand millions in frozen time

Memories keep stabbing me bloody to life
Sending me squinting in the golden light
Swift as a prick of a needle or a thorn
Pangs of reality spasm across the soul
