Library of Memories

Walking through my mind

I have relinquished the real

Thoughts flicker like snow

I forget how to feel

Flashes bring back to life

Ghosts of those I have lost

They whisper to me

From pages of frost

Regret is the lock

That traps me in my mind

Yearning for something

I can never find

I search icy shelves

Finding souls from my past

All stuck within tomes

Each heavier than the last

Set aside in my library

Past and present unfold

In an archive of memories

Fading into the cold

All spirits here

Including mine are lost

The truth is loneliness

No matter the cost
