1am thoughts

If this nature of life be true,
there need no distinction between
the aliveanddead of affections.
For with chance,
those gone merely wait for their moment of return
back into being,
and lives prove no more of
an expandable substance than
mere thoughts of yesterday.

To fade and forget and fail (to recall)
only proves the inability of one to let go.
