Reminiscences

Longer intervals long to linger
Testing you against the unforgiving
You have been taking exactly
The same you have been giving.

Merry mirages mired in mystical myths
Illusions set afar in a future too deep
Dead dreams knocking in dusty graves
Surroundings so surreal set as if
a still sleep
For cheap you sell out old dreams,
Forgetting the promises which were yours to keep.

Take what you want from this universe
Giving back in the same amount.
As adds on and on each new verse
In the end, it’s today that will count.
