there are those things in life that remain
within us, never forgotten... some soothe us,
some haunt us, and some bring us regret...
there are memories sweet and bitter
torrents of tears and those whispers
of another life, thoughts that will
not fade into time's oblivion and
lingering doubts, cursed uncertainties,
etched into every dream, every reality...
and there are too those words we leave
behind, those never spoken with cruel
intentions or deceit but hurtful nonetheless
...because they were never spoken at all
