Deep within the heart of things

Caught between the light and shade

Lie all the hidden things

You do not wish to see

The secrets that we never tell

They rise and are washed away

Imprisoned by the choices made

Appearances deceive

Sometimes nothing more

Than a trace within the eyes

But in that single instant

The fault lines  travel deeper

Leaving fractured pictures

And shattered fragments

Falling away, endlessly

And only the dust of memory remains

Like  mournful echoes

On the breeze
