A Story once Lived

Let the words mesmerise you
As I speak them.
Let the song move you
As I sing.
Let the memories from the depths
Be dragged to the surface
As you listen
Captured by a story
That you used to live.

So clearly now
Like a reflection in the mirror
You remember the tale
Of the life you once lived.
A cast of doomed characters
With an out of control star
Together they leapt head-first
Into the spiralling madness
Of the world.

Faded scars mark
A bruised and broken body
Your body, a temple
Long defiled and ruined
Beyond redemption
No longer was it possible
To love or be loved.

Around you
Chaos reigned
Nothing was ever constant
In this world you built
On top of shifting sand.

~ Greywatcher
