The River of Fraudulent Memories


Warmth Falls
Feelings Fade
What you see, You see no more
Consumed in shadows of the past
Desperately wishing to break free
To change...
Just as the others have
False hope and Fraud love
So heartfelt, yet so artificial
Pain is the reality
The actuality of it all
Catch reality
Never lose sight of it
The warmest soul will abscond
And end in the river of fraudulent memories
Do not dwell, Endure
Therein lies strength
Lies happiness
Synthesize your own warmth
Only you can govern your feelings
And only you will survive

person. This is my favorite part of the poem, the effects it has had on myself and hopefully
