Residual Memories

Sometimes

I pause and think about

The carcasses

Of a relinquishing past

Of fledgling ideas

That couldn’t fly

With broken wings

Of forgotten memories

That slipped

Into dark alleys

Of consciousness

I outstretch my arm

To feel their contours

To breathe life

Into them again

But they fade away

And choose to

Visit me

Fleetingly

In bizarre, vivid dreams

But somewhere I know

They lurk inside

In the darkness of my soul

And wring at my heart

As an undeniable

Irrepressible trace

Of residual memory
