‘’Memory’’ (Original Poem)


Is it senseless or is it sensory?

Is it my imagination or a perfect memory?

If two eyes can speak and lips can touch

Then what happens when fate runs out of luck?

If hearts can hear and tones can feel

Then what if the memories are mine to steal?

Beat by beat, page by page

Do chapters of moments bleed into age?

If attention was not driven by passion

If fear was not driven by cognition

Then what happens when you dream of salvation

Only to realize it is a song filed by emotion?
