temple of the mind
sanctuary of the past
protecting crystal light
stopped in time

the wake of life
gravity perturbed
by visions of the past
rippling echoes

stripped of sound
scattered cuts
a vibrant film
the highlight reel

the quiet moment
lips without meaning
surely sweet
the smell of honey

embraced in absence
warm hands
cast cozy shadows
deep and dark

no random access
to the black
what's there
forever lost

fragments arranged
in harmonious order
protection protocol
measured Control

sleeping taste of rust
trigger pulled
a flash in the dark
fatal system error

snipped to perfection
pouring golden emotion
into the gaps
letting the fracture heal

what is new is old
never old again
offered to the past
exchanged for comfort in the now
