Forgotten by James G. Piatt

I Whispered” by Marilyn Whitehorse

So much forgotten,
more than a moment
in a field of darkness, 
more than the shape of 
a timeless thought. 

Since memories cannot 
Spring from that, which is
forgotten only the
shadows of unreality remain 
for we of fading hours.

Our hours, waiting to locate
eternity, weighed down with 
the weariness of living, are
resting on the edge of a razor.
